MEMPHIS, TN - If you get a call from someone saying they're an MLGW employee and they need to come inside your home to check on something, hang up the phone.
On Sunday, November 30, 2008, MLGW officials and Memphis Police issued a public safety warning about a man posing as an MLGW worker."Look for I.D. badges," says Stanley. "Every employee has a badge. The truck will be clearly labeled with an MLGW logo so you're going to know it's an MLGW employee. And if you have any questions about it, don't let them in your house." (more here)
We say: Great! Better yet, add a security feature to the badge to make it anti-counterfeit and educate the public.
