Ah, the old 'we were in the neighborhood' line. Yeah, just no. Hubs needs to learn to say 'no thanks' whenever anyone tries to sell him anything. In a perky, cheerful tone. Over and over. And if they ring your doorbell again I'd tell them to go away and not come back. Then call the cops to report them. Soliciting insurance fraud must surely be a crime, no?
I REALLY wish my husband would say no thanks to these door to door sales people. I asked him why he stands there and listens for a long time and he says that he sees no harm in it and he wants to hear what they have to say. He says not everything is a scam. He just has no idea how to leave a situation like that. I think he finds it rude to say no thanks before they had a chance to say their speech. I tried to tell him his time is valuable too and he doesn't owe them anything.
On the bolded--well, now there's been harm. Because you have these scammers bothering you multiple times, trying to induce you to commit insurance fraud with them.
"Hubs, for my
peace of mind, would you please get rid of these people before they see you (us) as a mark? It causes me
stress when I have to deal with it, especially when they don't take no for an answer. It's true that not everything is a scam, but the vast majority of these drop-ins are, at best, incompetents who can't get business any other way. And enough of them are
scams that I feel uncomfortable letting them even hang around the house, much less take pictures and keep coming by."
Maybe if he sees it as helping you he can overcome his gullible instincts.
