"We're just going around the area warning you about people posing as city employees, wanting to check water quality," Lt. Greg Denman warned Lufkin residents as he walked door to door.
It's not a city employee, it's someone who wants to separate you from your money and your possessions.
"People would come in to the home, run the water into a vial, shake it up and then say your water is bad, you need a filter and sell them a filter a real exorbitant amount. So we're not sure if it has to do something with that or just the simple being in the home looking over seeing things that they might be able to come back and burglarize or take things at that time," explained Denman.
"It's not the city. If it is a city employee, they should be in a city vehicle with a city logo on the side with the department underneath the logo with number identifying which truck that is. They should also have a picture ID badge," added Lufkin Public Works Director Keith Wright.
