“Dear PoPville,

Remember a few years back when people posing as Verizon employees where knocking on doors to do a system check? I believe that scam is running again in Petworth/ 16th St. Heights.

I had 3 young adults knock on my door today alleging to work for Verizon. One was wearing a very faded Verizon shirt, the others looked like they were in school uniforms – dark polos and kakhi pants.

I explained that I had recently moved iand I just had Verizon at my house last week, so I would call the office if I had problems and they went away.

But just wanted to remind people not let these people in your house. Verizon employees should be able to show you an employee ID and do not do door to door solicitations.

Be safe!”
