Dear PoPville,

Just a heads-up that there are some scammers out in Petworth today posing as pepco salesmen. WAMU ran this story about them last week.

“A regional scam is hitting one D.C. neighborhood as crooks falsely posing as utility workers are targeting Columbia Heights.

There have been multiple reports from residents who say a stranger has shown up on their doorstep, claiming to be from a utility, according to Pepco. The so-called representative arrives unannounced and asks for account information and entry into the home.”
