Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Consumer Alert: Protect America, Inc. uses deceptive marketing, small print contracts with unreasonable clauses, and "buyout terms" if you have their service and want to stop it even if you have passed the initial contract period! It was the worst customer service experience I have ever had in my life. They value their contract and their $175.00 more than an awful customer experience.

There has to be a better choice for anyone who wants to get an alarm with a monitoring service. Protect America is an awful choice. The system failed many times and police arrived to 2 false alarms. I never used after that. I just waited for the end of my contract. Guess what that was too late to cancel! Who would have thought! I called earlier in the year and was told to wait until the end of my contract. They told me they did not see that in the notes and I signed in 5 different places that I had to cancel 2 months prior to the end of the contract.

Do not use Protect America! Post this warning everywhere. Send it out to you email list. I will! What is the price of 1 let a lone 100's of unhappy customers? It has to be great! Don't give up on Protect America until they are out of business. I won't and as I told them on the phone, I know there has to be others who you have had this problem with. I found a lot of them on this website and others!

Plus many others- I will blog about this and I will do it often. They should have just let me out of the contract. If I can't cost them 10 times that amount I won't be satisfied. What a problem company. Protect America problems should be the title of my posts. Protect America Service was awful also. I will be heard!
