Kirby Carpet Cleaning Scam?


Letter to the editor 1I just want to alert people to a carpet cleaning scam here in the Loveland/Berthoud area. The caller said that they were a new carpet cleaning company getting started in Northern Colorado and wanted mouth to mouth referrals. The offered to clean a room to demonstrate their service.

When they arrived, the first gentleman came into the house to see what room was to be cleaned. He went out to the car and he and another man came in with a new Kirby vacuum cleaner in a box.

They then tried to sell us a $3500 Kirby vacuum cleaner.

These are not reputable people. They lied to gain entry to our home in an attempt to sell an overpriced carpet sweeper.

They may have targeted us because we are elderly (80-years-plus), but we are not stupid.

Don’t allow these people into your home.
