"CALL US"-UTILITY COMPANIES
Members of the public should contact utility companies like TTEC, WASA and TSTT if they are suspicions about the bona fides of workers coming to their premises, the companies have stated.
TTEC PUBLIC RELATIONS OFFICER STEVE MARTELL: "TTEC workers don't need to enter premises to disconnect. This can be done from a pole if necessary. Our vehicles are clearly marked. While we have contractors, persons who have suspicions about situations should call us."
WASA PRO ELLEN LEWIS : "Our employees must be properly identifiable. Persons can ask to see their company-issued ID. If customers have any concerns of people purporting to be WASA employees they should contact WASA before admitting them onto the premises."
TSTT PRO CAMILLE SALANDY: "People claiming to be fixing your service when nothing is wrong, is cause for alarm. Ask for ID. Call us to confirm if necessary. Be familiar with TSTT's published list of contractors and their contacts. Company vehicles are officially marked."
FLOW, whose personnel have been impersonated by culprits and which sometimes uses contractors - did not respond.
