Some points to remember should you choose to open your door to a salesperson:
- Do not invite the person(s) inside
- Do not sign any documents under pressure
- If you are not interested in what is being offered or if they use aggressive tactics, ask them to leave your property. If you are suspicious, immediately report the incident to police (the non-emergency line of the Nottawasaga OPP is 1-888-310-1122)
