Please pass along. Alert NYPD if you recognize anyone on poster.
I don't know if you've put this out. This is a big city wide scam. Fortunately it hasn't hit the 110 Pct but has hit the 104 and 108 Pct. Below is a synopsis of the pattern. Please alert your group and have them pass to all they can reach!
The pattern consists of twenty eight (28) cases involving two to three male whites who pose at utility workers claiming they need to observe pipes for leaks, check water pressure, or check possible electrical problems. While the perp accompanies victim to tend to such water issues, an additional perp ventures to locations in the residence, stealing US currency and jewelry. All incidents involve elderly victims. (median age 79)
The latest incidents predominantly include an electricity driven M.O... Bad guys have used the ruse that a transformer "blew" and they need to check the electricity, or observe an electrical panel.
