Washington, DC

“Dear PoPville,

Seems the scammers are out trying to get in their scams in before the hurricane. We got a knock at the door last night from three people posing as PEPCO workers asking to see our bill to see if we are “running at green efficiency,” which may be the new “there seems to be excessive charges in your neighborhood” method of scamming information.

Three people, two younger black adults at the door (20’s guy and girl with lanyards and hi-vis vests) and a third older (40’s) “supervisor” guy who stayed on the sidewalk. We’re at the north side of Petworth, 4900 Block of 4th St, and I got video, but I didn’t get a good shot of their faces as they stood with their back to my security camera. Friendly reminder / tip for the readers to not be stupid!”
