Texas Attorney General Greg Abbot has issued a consumer alert concerning door-to-door sales.
The Aug. 8 alert warns that many of the scams revolve around alarm systems.
Abbott suggests consumers verify and check anyone who comes to their door.
“If you don’t know them, learn about them before you do business,” he said.
Abbott noted that anyone can call the Tarrant County Constables Office Precinct 7 if they have a concern.
