I don’t post much but something just happened that freaked me out. I’m at home with my husband but our car isn’t in the driveway. We were upstairs and some guy rang our doorbell. My husband went to answer and the guy said he had received a call to unlock our door, mentioning our address. Obviously, we never made such a call. Plus, why would he ring the doorbell if someone was locked out of their house? He then said he would go check his records in the car. He had a full kit to unlock our door in his hands. He had also parked in our driveway, hidden under the tempo.
I went downstairs and when he backed out of our spot, I noticed his car didn’t have a company name or phone number listed. I wrote down his license plate and called the police immediately.
Anyway, I just wanted to share because I’m really freaked out now, hoping he doesn’t return.

@venusandback: Good idea to report him to police. I would also consider getting an alarm system if you don’t have one. Ringing the doorbell is a common way burglars make sure nobody is home before breaking into your home.

Wow, that’s freaky. Do you have a security system? Even signs are supposed to be a good deterant. I got to say though, as someone who did have their house robbed, (front door kicked in and quoted $2400 to fix) at least this guy was decent enough to try to pick the lock and not just wreck the door kicking it in. Sorry, I have to find some humor in my break in..

@venusandback: Very scary!!!! I second what another bee said, robbers will often times ring the doorbell to make sure that noone is home and that there aren’t vicious guard dogs waiting around the corner. Good job calling the cops!! I’d definitely look into getting a security system!
