In the last couple of months, yesterday august 5, 2008 being the latest, so called "salesmen" come to your door under the pretense that they have a new "air purifying company" and have a "free gift". With me it was either detergent or fabric softener. After he actually followed my husband into the house, (he was not invited!!!), he and his partner proceeded to demonstrate the vacuum cleaner and after almost 2 hours!!!, when my husband said we were not interested, they got very hostile. Even to the point of refusing to leave until they completed the demonstration! Only after my husband threatened to call the police, did they finally leave and even then were being very rude! Yesterday, they came back and this time my elderly mother and father in law were the victims. Again, after being told that they were not interested, they refused and even asked my retired baptist preacher father in law, what kind of christian he was?!!! Also, they ask alot of suspicious questions. For example, do you have a dog?, whose car is that in the driveway? And also they call you my your first name like you are old friends!!! Unbelievable!

Do not let these people in your home! Do not even answer the door! If they do somehow get in and will not leave, call 911 immediately! Our local sheriffs department has been notified as well

EVEN TO THE POINT OF REFUSING TO LEAVE UNTIL THEY COMPLETED THE DEMONSTRATION! ONLY AFTER MY HUSBAND THREATENED TO CALL THE POLICE, DID THEY FINALLY LEAVE AND EVEN THEN WERE BEING VERY RUDE! YESTERDAY, THEY CAME BACK AND THIS TIME MY ELDERLY MOTHER AND FATHER IN LAW WERE THE VICTIMS.
