An unknown person posed as a SDG&E employee in La Jolla recently, the energy company reported on Friday.
SDG&E provided several safety tips:
SDG&E workers on company business are required to carry a photo ID badge and employee uniforms usually have the SDG&E logo. Always ask for identification before allowing anyone inside your home.
Most of the time, an SDG&E employee will visit in response to a service request. If no one scheduled an appointment, call SDG&E at 800-411-SDGE (7343) before allowing anyone inside. Occasionally, SDG&E employees will stop by without an appointment but they will always have photo ID.
If you are still not sure, do not open the door and call SDG&E at 800-411-SDGE (7343). SDG&E customer service representatives are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to assist you.
