PoP PSA – Pepco impersonator still out there

Back on Feb. 2 a reader first brought this up in the forum. Sadly, it seems, the Pepco impersonator has not been caught yet. A reader forwards a note from a Springperry (Columbia Heights) listserv:

Apparently the Pepco impersonator was working the 1500 block of Spring Place yesterday. A neighbor (who had not seen the email warning that appeared on the list serve earlier this month) said that he flashed a very fake looking ID with no photo and then asked to see his Pepco bill. This is a positive confirmation that this person is definitely a con artist. My neighbor called Pepco, who confirmed that this person is not legit, but apart from that Pepco was not very helpful. Beware everyone and if you have elderly neighbors who don’t have email please be sure to warn them!! Should we call the police if we see him again and will they even come out for something like this? Anyone have any suggestions?

Def. call the police if anyone encounters this guy.
