    Personally I wouldn't let anyone in without ID/some kind of really credible looking thingie. And even then maybe not if it were just me and kids home. Not paranoid! Just life these days.

    Default Door knockers with free powerboards

    I wouldn't either. I'm really surprised they're doing this door to door, without any warning or time to check it out.

    Geez, I must be very trusting or naive. I didn't think too much of it - obviously I checked ID, listened to the spiel and then got my HELP ME app ready to go just in case.

    Oh I almost forgot but I let another guy in the same week to change our shower head - another government initiative.

    They came to my place today too. I'd heard of the initiative and he showed me his ID. I felt ok about it so I let him in. I think they need to prove that they've done the install and explained it to you etc to get paid. They offered shower heads too.

    You did the right thing not to let them in your house It is legite we have one, but I told them to come back when dh was home and they did. No way would I let a stranger in my home, alone!

    Not paranoid....wary....and that's fine!

    Yeah there's a gov initiative with these power boards at the moment but who says this bloke was for real? Could just be some wako with a power board wanting access to your home.

    No thanks, I'll remember to turn my own TV off thanks!

    My SIL has one, its a PITA to be honest
