Baltimore County Police Warn Of Potential Scammers Posing As Repair Or Cable Employees
Well back in town, Baltimore County Police have issued a warning to County residents to be on the lookout for scammers who could knock on your door posing as repair or cable employees.
The Baltimore County Police Department said scammers often attempt to distract residents when their house is unlocked. “Somebody could be talking to you . . . and then somebody could go around the back and climb in your window.”
Police said that if someone is going out of town, then they should not advertise their trip. That information should only be shared with a few neighbors who can watch the house so the information doesn’t end up in the wrong hands.
They also also recommend keeping a few lights on so it looks as though someone is home.
So be mindful of whats happening around you.
