EASTCHESTER, N.Y. -- Residents are being warned by Con Edison to beware of imposters claiming to work for the electric company and trying to enter homes and businesses.
The company said that all Con Edison employees carry identification cards with their photo, name and the company’s name and logo and that residents should ask to see that ID before allowing inside their homes or business.
They also said if the person does have identification, but the resident still feels uneasy, call 1-800-75CONED (1-800-752-6633).
Anyone who suspects a person is falsely claiming to be a Con Edison employee should also call the local police.
