Utility worker scam hitting St. Louis area

Posted: Updated:

(KMOV.com) – Police in Frontenac are warning residents of a con that scammers are using to gain access inside their homes.

The scammers are posing as electric or water company workers in order to try to get into homes and steal items inside.

Police say you should never let anyone into your home - especially if you did not call for utility services – without first fully identifying them and verifying their employment.

Call authorities if you suspect a fake worker is in the neighborhood.
