There have been numerous complaints from homeowners concerning aggressive and potentially fraudulent sales practices.

The Winnipeg Police Service is warning homeowners of a sales person that is making cold-calls to random residences. There may be one or two, male or female, and they may have uniforms with business identification. 

The 'sales people' will try and gain access to your house by stating they are performing furnace inspections.

Police say that no private company, nor their employees, have any legal authority to enter a home to perform a furnace inspection. Their ultimate goal is to sell you home heating products.

Manitoba Hydro may go door to door but will never pressure homeowners to gain entry, and always have employee identification with a name and photo.

The public is reminded to deny entry to any individual that seems suspicious and are asked to call the police non-emergency number at 204-986-6222 if they need any more information.
