Police warn residents of water company scammers

Police are warning people to be suspicious of workmen posing as water company workers who are trying to weasel their way into people's homes.



The fake workers are targeting people in New Canaan, Greenwich, Darien and Stamford.



Police say the scammers usually knock on the door and say they have to do maintenance work inside the home.



Police say residents should not let anyone inside without first checking with the utility company to make sure it is legitimate.
