One security firm in Essex found themselves more sinners than saints when they posted flyers through the letter boxes of residents – and left them sticking out all day.
Said residents were understandably annoyed at 360 Home Security given the leaflets basically advertised they were not home – and actually invited potential burglars to break into their house.
To make things even worse, the flyer featured a picture of a burglar peering round a door – and it is safe to say the homeowners will not be buying anything from 360 Home Security any time soon.
One resident claimed:
The leaflet was slotted between the frame and the door and I was not happy about it.
It is an invitation to purchase a burglar alarm but really they are inviting burglars.
