Scammers Posing As Water Department Targeting Elderly
Last Friday, a man posing as water department employee conned his way into the home of a 94-year-old woman.
Police say the man convinced her to take him downstairs to examine her pipes while an accomplice snuck in and stole $800 from the woman’s bedroom.
WBZ-TV’s Jim Armstrong reports.
That same day, police believe the same suspects talked their way into the house of a 91-year-old woman. But when they realized her 83-year-old husband was home,they took off.
Authorities are reminding everyone that they should ask to see proper identification of anyone who wants to enter their homes.
