URGENT INFORMATION: Alarm Company scam

ScamDue to a given occasion of alarm company scam in the Algarve, we'd like to publish the following statement, we received from afpop.

"We have been made aware of a potential scam from a person purporting to represent a company called Europe Alarm Systems. Unsolicited phone calls have been received from a female stating that she has obtained telephone numbers and names from the Land Registries and that they are offering free crime prevention surveys to home owners and that local Câmaras are paying for installation of alarms, which are then maintained at the home owners’ expense. Checks with local Câmaras and police has discovered that no such agreement exists.

Before giving ANY information over the telephone or inviting any such company to your home, please ensure that you have ascertained that the call and offer are genuine. Where another organisation is used to add credibility, for example Câmaras, GNR etc, please check with that organisation to verify what is being said to you. Any genuine caller will be happy to give their details for you to call them back once you have verified what they have said to you. Please make sure that YOU find the phone numbers for any other organisation and do NOT use any number given to you by the person that calls you.

If in any doubt at all – say no and report the call to your local police station."
