East Hartford police are warning residents to be on alert for solicitors posing as Eversource employees.
Police said they are looking into reports of people using “aggressive marketing tactics” and claiming association with Eversource. Police said Eversource employees never go door-to-door to discuss bills or energy options.
Residents are encouraged to report any suspicious behavior to Eversource at 800-286-2000 and police.
It is common for scammers to pose as utility workers to get into homes. Police caution residents to think before opening the door to an unknown person, especially if they don’t have an appointment.
