Over the past couple months, employees from Vision Security Systems have been in the Spokane area. These employees have been contacting citizens without security systems and telling them the Sheriff's Office has received a grant and is paying for installation
of new security systems. Employees are also contacting homeowners with existing security systems, telling them they need to make some changes to their system and having the homeowner sign a new contract through Vision Security. The homeowner is then charged
a higher price than the contract stated. In some cases, the homeowner still gets charged with their original security system company as well as a new charge through Vision Security. This is a sixty-day contract that the homeowner only has three days to cancel.
The Spokane County Sheriff's Office does not have a contract for installation of home security systems with any company. Vision Security is a legitimate company, however employees are lying to customers and allegedly forging contracts.
Detective M. Stewart is asking any victims of this scam to contact him via e-mail at MAStewart@spokanesheriff.org
