City Of Detroit Reminds Residents To Be Aware Of Scammers

(CBS DETROIT) - The city of Detroit has received reports of individuals trying to take advantage of Detroiters as they deal with flood damage.

Officials are reminding residents that Detroit Water and Sewerage Department employees drive DWSD vehicles, wear department uniforms and have badges.

Individuals who have volunteered to help residents remove items from their basement will call before they arrive at homes and are wearing Serve Detroit t-shirts.

Residents, who are unsure of the person at their door, should not allow the person inside their home and should call (313) 674-1080 to verify the person's identity.
