New Yorkers are being told to be on the lookout for what appears to be a group of con-men targeting Con Edison customers.
The utility is warning customers to be on the lookout for scammers posing as company employees.
Con Ed says the fake workers promise to lower a customer's bills, in exchange for cash or checks.
Customers should always ask for an employee's ID.
They can also call 1-800-75-CONED to see whether a person really works for the company.
