Person posing as MDC employee trying to enter residential homes
HARTFORD–Residents are being asked to be vigilant about those in their neighborhoods.
Recently, the Metropolitan District Commission reports that an individual has been posing as a water company employee in an attempt to gain access to people’s homes.
To ensure you stay safe, here are some tips from MDC:
- MDC field employees wear clothing and drive vehicles clearly marked with the MDC logo.
- The MDC encourages customers to ask for identification from anyone who comes to their door. All MDC employees have photo identification badges and will gladly display them upon request. The policy is “No Identification – No Entry.”
- If someone comes to your door claiming to be from the water company and you do not have a previously scheduled appointment, do not allow access to your home until calling the MDC Command Center at 860-278-7850 ext. 3600 to verify their identity.
- If you have any doubt about the individual’s identity or motives, or authenticity of their credentials, do not allow them entry into your home and call the police.
