The Texas Attorney General is warning Texans to protect themselves again door-to-door scams.
During the summer months, door-to-door sales people may become more frequent in neighborhoods across Texas, according to officials.
The Attorney General is warning about one particularly common door-to-door sale involving security systems.
Texans may get a knock on their doors from individuals claiming to be selling security systems or components, or claiming to work for their security system companies conducting tests or making repairs or upgrades.
Some door-to-door salespersons may be legitimate, but others may use deceptive tactics to make a sale, taking advantage of trusting Texans in the process.
Texans who think they are the victim of a scam can file a complaint with the Office of the Attorney General
