Please warn folks about bogus salespeople for Apex Alarm.  They go door to door attempting to sell you wireless security systems but want to get in your house to look at your layout.  I have checked internet and they are a scam.  I have notified NCC police.

This has also occurred recently in Windybush.  A resident told Bryon and I today that she came home to find them in her house with her husband who had fallen for it.  She ripped up the paperwork and told them to leave.  Another group were also recently in Brandywood.  One person was told the the yound man was the son of the Johnsons on the next street and he got $10 for a donation.  The resident found out later that there are no Johnsons on the next street over.

Lets all work together to warn our neighbors about this activity.  There is a rash of it going on and hopefully we can get rid of these scam artists.  Also, if they knock on your door, call your neighbors and warn them (especially elderly neighbors who are vulnerable) and ask them to do the same.  You can also call the New Castle County police.
