She says products generating these complaints include home security systems, vacuum cleaners, meat products and magazine subscriptions.
Theriault says if you want to discourage salespeople from coming to your door, you should post a "no soliciting" sign on your property. She adds you should never feel obligated to open your door to a stranger and beware of tactics used to get into your home, such as asking for a glass of water. She adds if you do let a salesperson in and they won't leave call the police. For other tips to protect yourself click here.
