Protect against fraud: Door-to-door sales

Please be aware that the Town has received reports of salesmen going door-to-door misrepresenting themselves as Town of EG staff or Town of Newmarket staff. These companies often pose as employees to enter the home and then attempt to convince residents to purchase an expensive filtration/purification system with a long maintenance program.

Town staff do not conduct door-to-door sales nor does the Town contract any company to conduct sales for water filtration systems on our behalf. If staff ever need to visit your home they will produce official Town identification at the time of the visit.

Please contact the Town’s Customer Service department at 905-478-4282 if you are ever unsure, or contact York Regional Police at 1-866-876-4523 if you suspect fraud.
