On Sunday, a South Boston Dorchester Street resident heard a knock on the door and was greeted by a gentleman wearing a checked button down shirt claiming to work for the “Water Company.” The homeowner was suspicious and asked to see a company i.d. The gentleman could not produce one and ended up fleeing on foot. The resident immediately called police.
So take notice, Southie – don’t let anyone in your home claiming to work for a company if they can’t produce the proper credentials. Another red flag? Someone from the Water and Sewer working on a Sunday – they normally work Monday through Friday unless it’s an emergency situation.
Be safe and if you have questions or feel like something doesn’t seem right, just call C-6 station at (617) 343-4730.
