Utility Scam Safety Tips

Scammers posing as utility company employees are a real threat. Follow these important safety tips from the Fairfield Police Department to protect yourself:

  • Do Not Let Them Inside: Never allow solicitors inside your home.

  • Be Firm: Politely but firmly tell them you’re not interested and ask them to leave. If they refuse, call the police immediately.

  • Verify Their Identity: If you hire a utility worker, ask for proof of company affiliation.

  • When in Doubt, Call: If you’re unsure about someone’s legitimacy, contact the Utility company at the number on your most recent bill or call Fairfield Police at 203-254-4800.
