NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- New Canaan police are warning residents of people claiming to be Eversource employees attempting to scam people in the business district of town.
Police issued the warning on Twitter Thursday, saying that the suspects have threatened to cut off power to people if they don't receive payment. Police said that one suspect is a white male between the ages of 35 and 40 years old, seen driving in a white van. A woman has also been calling businesses, claiming to be from Eversource, police said.
You should not make any payments if you are approached by the scammers, police said. You should instead try to obtain suspect identification, a vehicle identification or a license plate number and call 911, police said.
