The City of Windsor is sending out a warning to residents to be aware of individuals posing as City Building Inspectors.
City officials say that several people have reported that individuals dressed similar to inspectors knocked on their door and asked to enter their homes. Once inside, the men go to the water heater and begin talking about the benefits of one product over another and it becomes apparent they are salesmen from a water heater rental company. One resident reported the individual was in his home for almost an hour before leaving.
All City of Windsor Inspectors are required by law to carry photo identification. The city says that if someone comes to your door and identifies themselves as a Building Inspector, ask to see their Inspector’s Badge and photo identification.
Residents are also asked to call the Inspections Dispatch number at 519-255-6453 to report such a situation.
