Cornwall, ON- The Cornwall Community Police Service have received reports of individuals identifying themselves as government employees needing to gain access into residences to confirm their furnaces are in compliance.
These individuals can be persuasive and sometimes forceful claiming “it’s the law you need to let us in”. If you are pressured to make a big purchase decision or an immediate decision, it’s probably not a legitimate deal. Real businesses or charities will give you a chance to check them out or think about it.
The Cornwall Community Police Service wishes to remind residence never give out any personal information in person, over the telephone or the internet without researching and confirming who you are talking to.
