Attorney Andy Milz understands consumer fraud
and knows how to protect your rights against a
deceptive solar panel sales company.
Take the following steps.
One day a door-to-door salesman visits your home. Friendly enough and confident, he drops the name of one or two neighbors and keeps you engaged in conversation. He tells you the panels are free and you’ll save money by lowering your electric bills. He may use an iPad or tablet to present the advantages of solar power for your home.
Consumers must be cautious. Your signature or initials on an iPad or tablet could be affixed to a contract or other forms that you did not intend. Before signing anything, insist on a paper copy of every document in advance. Do not be pressured in to same day signing. If you do not understand the terms, do not sign anything and consult an attorney.
Signing an iPad or tablet may seem easy. It makes the sales process appear seamless. The salesman may lead you to believe that whatever you see on a screen can easily be emailed to you.
Do not accept the promise that the salesperson will send or email electronic documents to you. You may not receive them until it’s too late. Or, the electronic document may have a waiver of rights clause buried in it that you cannot see when you sign.
Tip for E-Signing documents: We suggest you place the date right next to your signature on everything you sign, as in "D.L. Wilson 7/13/20". Regardless of whether a date appears anywhere else on the screen or document, adding the date right next to your signature makes it harder for a crooked business to transplant your signature onto a different document.

Your credit report is the key to consumer fraud. It is a record of your financial history and includes personal information listing all of your open credit accounts, payment history, balances, charge-offs, collections and public records.
