THOMAS CO., GA (WALB) -

Thomas County deputies are warning the public after they say people posing as ADT employees were seen knocking on doors.

Deputies say the problem has been going on for several weeks now.

Residents told deputies that the people who approached them claimed to be with ADT and needed to come in and update their alarm system.

Investigators say they were able to get in touch with ADT and determine these guys were not their employees.

"We contacted ADT directly and they said absolutely not. We do not send anybody to anyone's home cold call like this. It's always something scheduled through the office. People know when we're coming," said Thomas County Sheriff's Office Public Information Officer Steve Jones.

Investigators say you should always be cautious as to who you let in your home.

Jones says if anyone feels they have been scammed, you should contact your ADT provider and then local law enforcement.
