Security Dealer 'Social Media Contractor' Program

By: John Honovich, Published on Jun 25, 2019

A $20,000 video surveillance system can be yours for free if you are willing to post on social media about the security dealer.

Good deal, bad deal or scam?

This issue arose at IPCamTalk where forum participants roundly condemned this as a 'scam'. 

IPVM spoke both with the prospect who received this offer and the owner of the dealer, Ageint Security to better understand what is being provided and what concerns there might be.
