The state's telemarketer no-call list is bringing back an old style pressure sales tactic you need to be aware of.
If they can't make a sales pitch over the phone, Consumer protection's Glen Loyd says some of those companies are now going door-to-door.
Loyd says some sales people are producing multi-page contracts full of fine print trying to get you to sign on the spot. Some people do and then Consumer Protection hears about it later.
For example, Loyd says, people discover the company can raise their rates or charge them for returning equipment or even take payments-due from their bank account.
And in fact they can because people sign the contracts without taking the time to read them.
Bottom line, says Loyd, if you're really interested in the service ask the sales person to leave the contract and read it over carefully before you sign it.
