Consumers Alarmed by Fine Print

Released on June 11, 2015

The Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority (FCAA) notices a rise in the number of complaints related to the sales of home alarm systems during the summer months.  Consumer complaints in this area tend to fall into two categories; high-pressure sales tactics by door-to-door sellers and failure to read and understand the fine print.

The first thing consumers can do to protect themselves is verify the licence of the sales representative who has contacted them at home or by phone, by going to  Bad behaviour can be reported to the Consumer Protection Division of FCAA.

Second, asking the right questions about details in the fine print can save consumers a lot of grief.

Some of these questions include:
  • What is the total cost?
  • What is the cancellation process?
  • What is required if I move or change addresses?
  • Will service be interrupted if I switch telecomm providers?
