Catherine‘s a little worried about the people who showed up on her doorstep in Highland Park today and wonders if anyone has words of reassurance – or warning:
Today, while I was home (12th SW across from Riverview Field) alone with my
daughter, two men ran our doorbell. Normally, I don’t answer the door when I’m home
alone but gave it a second thought when I realized the people at the door might be
casing our house. I peeked out the window and noticed that their shirts said
My husband pulled up that moment and asked them what they needed. They told him that
our alarm system, ADT (we have a yard sign), had a problem with the equipment.
Because ADT connects their service to the phone lines, bad guys could simply cut the
phone lines and rob our house, and it was a common occurrence. They mentioned that
there is a fix that they can do, and it meant installing some sort of box.
My husband told the guys that my parents own this house and they would have to speak
with them at a later date.
I googled Pinnacle and found out that they are a legitimate alarm company, but any
time someone comes to my house midday on a Monday, I am suspicious, especially when
they are inquiring about my alarm system. Did anyone in the neighborhood encounter
these gentlemen, or have any information about them? Thanks!
