Would you let Installer people come into your house unannounced?

I just experience this now. As in now. Some installer from telecom company called me and told me that they will install our internet line. But our schedule is for tomorrow, not today. They said that they are "within the area" that's why they decided to come to our house to install. I didn't let them in because its not yet our schedule day. And my husband is not around so we're all girls here. I made the right decision right?

You are right. But I might allow them if I am 100% sure that they are real installers and if I live in a subdivision near the security guards and there are CCTV's. LOL! There are criminals who pretend to be the installer of something as we saw on TV so it is better to play safe.

@graciemac I try to ask my son to be home when someone comes to the house. Even if he is sleeping, I feel better having him there. And I can scream loud enough to wake him up, I hope. I have heard the tales of what people you hire to work are capable of doing after hours. Can't be too careful.

Yes. its just that they are very eager to do it now. They're rushing me, not even allowing me to call my husband so that we can decide together. In the end, I get angry and told them to come back tomorrow. If not, I'll report them to their company/ contractor.

Thanks for the concern guys.. It seems my decision was right.. Things got a little complicated as of today.It seems those guys really have some "bad" plans for us last Friday. We already coordinated with the telecom concerned.And to be safe, we cancelled our application to the internet service. The telecom company requested us to submit an incident report. We'll submit it tomorrow so that they can trace & do some legal actions against those people.
