The Waterbury mayor's office is warning residents of scammers posing as water company employees to enter a city home.
According to Waterbury Mayor Neil O'Leary, the Bureau of Water received a report that people had impersonated Water Department workers to get into a resident's house last night.
O'Leary is advising residents to check employees' identification before allowing them inside.
According to the mayor's Twitter account, all water company workers drive official vehicles marked with the City of Waterbury Bureau of Water logo and have city license plates.
Water company employees will never conduct cash transactions at customers' homes, the mayor tweeted.
Anyone with concerns about the authenticity of employees should call the city at 203-574-8251.
We advise homeowners not to allow individuals into their homes who claim to be from the Water Dept. unless they provide Water Dept. IDs.
