EDISON – Police are warning residents, particularly seniors, about a scam where thieves impersonate utility workers to gain access to a home and distract the resident while an accomplice enters and steals money and jewelry from the bedrooms.
Police are advising residents not to allow anyone inside their home without first verifying their identity by calling the company they work for, using a number on a bill or other document, not one the person provides. If you are approached and believe it may be a scam, call the Edison Police Department at 1-732-248-7400 and provide as many details as possible about the suspect or suspects and any vehicles.
