Vivint Home Automation is NOT a Scam – Truth Revealed

If you are hoping to add some extra security features onto your home – CCTV and automatic door locks perhaps – then it is certain that you have come across Vivint when doing your research. The company itself is based in the state of Utah and boasts a large client base of around half a million households however you may also have come across some negative reviews and remarks about the company and how there is a Vivint scam. We should note right away that you need to be careful of what you read on the internet especially when it is negative as it is much easier to write a negative comment behind an anonymous profile on the net than it is to do it in person. That being said, what is this so called ‘Vivint scam’ and is it really true?
Some people have commented that the services that the company offer do not reflect the price that they charge and that their customer service is poor as well and this, in some people’s eyes, amounts to a scam of some sort. However, there are some basic facts that refute this.
For a start we already mentioned that the company supplies home security and automation packages to half a million people so, if you believe the rumours on the internet, then this would mean that half a million or so households are not properly secured and that they are happy with this fact. It is highly unlikely that this is the case and, while a few people may have had a bad experience (it is the same with any company), the majority seem perfectly happy with the service that Vivint offer. Any talk of a Vivint scam should be discredit straight away as there is no evidence to support this and you can find plenty of accounts and testimonials that refute the scam claim altogether.

Been Mis-sold A PPI?

Many people have recently being given the opportunity to claim back on PPI’s. Essentially what this is, is an insurance policy that is taken out when you get something on credit – so this includes things such as loans and mortgages etc… that you pay back over time – however the fact is that many people may have been mis sold payment protection insurance and, as such, have a claim to the amount of money that they have been paying into this insurance over the years.
In fact, what has happened more often than not is that a great number of people did not even know that they had this PPI in the first place and had been paying money into it continuously for years sometimes without even knowing that they were or not even being eligible for it in the first place. How, then, could they receive this protection? Well many people were signed up to a PPI without even consenting to it and many policies – that were explained to the people taking out the credit – were mis sold it meaning that they weren’t even eligible; essentially you need to be working to get a PPI and many students and retired individuals and couples were given PPI’s when they were not strictly eligible to get one.
Also, many medical conditions also mean that you cannot get a PPI and there have been many people with heart problems and diabetes that have been wrongly paying into this insurance over the years. If you are not sure if you even have a PPI or if you are wanting to make a claim then contact a company that specialises in this as you could stand to be refunded a great deal of money that you have been paying out over the years that the insurance was active.
