Scam Description

This company called indicating that they were following up with rebates from Canadian Safety Standard since 2018 but needed the serial numbers off the current equipment. So I said yes to allowing them into my home however once they arrived they wanted to sell me a furnace, air conditioning and tankless water heater. They are indicating that they are from ******* ***** ******* affiliated with the government rebate programs. This is false information because when you go in the website that they did not provide but just gave me a name to search it doesn’t really populate the government website. Upon further search I found the government website however they to not solicit people to sell them anything. I believe this to be the same company working under a new name in the area. These sales people are from the Quebec area and work the same way as they did the first time in contacting you to sell you rental equipment that you are locked into for 10 yrs with not maintenance done on the equipment. Huge scam with liens put on your property!
