We've had complaints about suspicious phone or door-to-door sales calls, and we're advising people to be cautious.
Reports suggest that customers in Edmonton and surrounding communities are being approached on the phone or at the door about a possible water meter rebate. The person claims that a rebate may be available due to a recent water main break, and asks to enter the home to view the meter. The latest reports suggest the person may be wearing clothing that suggests affiliation with EPCOR.
EPCOR does not do door-to-door sales. (It is important to note that occasionally EPCOR does go door-to-door for operational issues, such as a water or power outage, or to share information about a utility project being proposed in your neighborhood, for meter reading or pre-scheduled meter switch-outs or water quality testing.)
EPCOR advises all customers to be cautious.
