Press Release - Door-to-Door Solicitor Warning

The Town of Whitecourt has received several complaints about door-to-door solicitors selling water filtration/  scaling products. The sales people may be pitching the products as a way to improve systems to guarantee savings and earn rebates.  The sales people are not clearly representing themselves, and in some instances have mentioned that they are affiliated with a government agency.

Water provided by the Town of Whitecourt meets and exceeds all Alberta Environment regulations, and does not require further treatment. The Town of Whitecourt is not affiliated with any door-to-door solicitors.

Residents are encouraged to use caution prior to providing any personal information to people soliciting door-to-door, and reminds consumers to protect themselves by not signing contracts on the spot so that you have time to adequately research products/services.
