From MPD Sat. around 5pm:

A short time ago, Officers responded to a report of a home invasion in the 600 block of Harvard St, NW. Two individuals were posing as Comcast employees, when they forced their way in to the complainant’s residence. The complainant was able to leave the residence unharmed. The suspects then escaped.

The suspects were last seen fleeing the area driving a burgundy Suburban, bearing a Maryland Tag# 9AF8655. If you observe the suspect vehicle, please call 911 immediately.

If anyone has additional information regarding this case, they are asked to contact MPD at 202 727-9099.

    I think this comcast scam has been going on for a while. About a week ago, a comcast guy showed up at our door (Parkview), my husband spoke to him but I think he was asking to come in and check for problems and I remember seeing something on listserves about this. Comcast has terrible service, so them showing up to proactively do anything should be a red flag!!

    Thank goodness they weren’t real Comcast employees!

  • i don’t think i’ve ever seen comcast arrive in anything other than a truck that screams COMCAST on every side. if there was such a truck in front of my house with you uniformed guys asking questions, i’d probably let my guard down.

    Two random-looking guys out of nowhere who want to come inside – no way.

  • live from Columbia Heights

    and they still fixed my cable better than a real Comcast employee!

    If they narrowed their time frame from 8:30-6 to 8:30-12, then it’s a fraud.

  • I was sketched out the first time Comcast guys came to set up my cable, and that was a scheduled appointment. Two guys showed up in sweatshirts and hardly mumbled that they were with Comcast. I was nervous enough to call a friend over, just in case. They ended up being fairly nice once I got them to talk at a normal level, but they were hardly professional.
