Buyers Beware when buying from a door-to-door salesperson

Posted:

WISCONSIN (WAOW)-- Buyers be cautious of fraudulent door-to-door sales. The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection urges renters and homeowners to question solicitors before buying into their pitch.

According to Wisconsin Law the seller must provide their name, company and purpose of their visit before pitching the sale. Also asking to see a seller's permit to determine legitimacy.

If you do buy and have second thoughts state law offers a grace period.

Bureau Communications Specialist Brock Bergey says, "So if after you're thinking you really don't want that product or service, legally in Wisconsin you have three days from the time you purchase that product to cancel the service."
