These 3 things can help you to know if you are getting scammed or not
#1: How do they identify their company?
Scammers typically go by many names, it’s important to listen for the company name that they say on the phone. Often times they will answer the phone with a very generic greeting such as, “garage door service” or “garage doors”. This is just a way for them to not risk saying a different company name from the name in the advertisement you’ve received.
#2: What company Am I speaking with?
If they haven’t correctly identified themselves then ask
If they give you a generic greeting be sure you ask them what their company name is. It’s always a good idea to ask if you can confirm the company you’ve called. If they can’t provide you the company name, or say they work for a different company than you were expecting then there’s a chance you’ve have a scammer. If any repair or service company cannot correctly identify themselves over the phone then you should hang up and call another company.
#3: Can you provide me with the address of your business?
This is the most important of them all.
Ask the company for their specific street address in your area and verify that address
A company should always be able to give you their physical location. Many reputable garage door companies have offices and showrooms where they display garage doors and openers. Scammers will almost never give you their address and if a company does give you an address is always important to look it up online or on Google Maps to verify it’s legitimate. Most times they just use a address that is often known in the community just to get recognition
