It has come to the attention of representatives at Met-Ed, that individuals are reportedly going door-to-door identifying themselves as Met-Ed Employees and asking to see the customer's electric bill. In one particular case, the customers were elderly and the perpetrators claimed they were checking to see if they were receiving all the discounts seniors are entitled to.
Please keep the following in mind in the event you are approached by someone claiming to be a Met-Ed Employee:
* Met-Ed does not go door-to-door.
* Met-Ed does not ask to go into homes (unless there is an inside meter).
* Met-Ed Employees and contractors wear a photo ID badge - ask to see it.
* Met-Ed vehicles are clearly marked.
If you are suspicious, please call Met-Ed at 1-800-545-7741 to find out if they are working in the area or call 911 to report any suspicious activity.
