Riverside (Calif.) Public Utilities (RPU) is urging its customers to be aware of people driving fake utility trycks from an unknown utility agency posing as City of Riverside/RPU employees with the intention of entering homes.
RPU personnel working in the community drive clearly marked fleet vehicles, wear city uniforms with respective logos, and display proper photo identification.
"RPU customers should be vigilant and aware of their surroundings. The safety and security of our customers remain a top priority of RPU. If you see something suspicious, please report it right away," said RPU General Manager Girish Balachandran in a statement.
