Beware of False Grant Schemes
Schemes are plentiful. Some AED dealers mislead customers by offering brand-name AEDs and make the customer go through unnecessary steps to apply. They may ask customers to release confidential information and waste valued time with the intention of making the customer feel like they are getting a deal when they are not.
