ask for employee ID badge before letting anyone home

According to San Francisco Chronicle it has happened number of times in recent weeks that imposters acting as Contra Costa Water District employees have tried to enter local area resident’s homes.  In order to prevent scam CCDW advises to ask for employee ID badge as well as to pay attention to the clothing of person acting as CCDW employee. CCDW staff wear uniforms with company logo; vehicles used by the company are also marked with logos. If visitor identity is in question you can always call CCDW at (925) 688-8095 to verify employee status and visit’s purpose.
