A Grand Junction woman says her elderly mother was taken advantage of with questionable sales techniques.
Despite having noticeable memory loss, the salesman who came to her house kept pushing her to sign.
Wednesday evening, Anne Landman got a call from her elderly mother's care giver.
She was concerned that the 83-year old woman was about to sign a $9,000 contract to replace all the windows in her home.
"I jumped in the car with my husband and we ran over. We found a gentleman sitting on the sofa with a tie and a white shirt, kind of a dress outfit, he had a big sample window and a big case and he had a clip board box with a contract on it," Anne explained.
The problem is Anne’s mother suffers from memory loss.
She couldn't even remember her birthday when the salesman asked for it.
“That probably should have been a red flag to him that he ought to stop but he didn't," Anne said. "These are the kind of people that this company is praying on.”
Anne thinks the salesman was taking advantage of her mother.
"It was just a hard sale, a hard sale on a poor, incapacitated old lady,” Anne said.
The salesman works for K-Designers.
In a statement the company told KJCT quote, “Although senior citizens do not represent the majority of our customer base, our team members have been specifically trained to look for any signal that may indicate a senior citizen (or any other potential customer) may have special needs or require the assistance of a family member or other caregiver."
Still, Anne says it makes her more skeptical of door to door salesman.
K-Designers says if at anytime its team members are asked to leave, they are trained to do so promptly.
The salesman in this case left and no checks were written.
