Bogus inspector scam
North Glengarry Township is warning the public of a scam that is targeting people in Alexandria.
“One of our residents reported to us that he was approached last week, at his home, by two young men claiming to be working for the provincial government,” the municipality relates. “They asked to inspect the thermostat in the home to see if it met government regulations. These two young men were not allowed entry to the property. This incident has been reported to the Ontario Provincial Police. If you are similarly approached, please contact the police.”
