Cellcom is warning local residents about individuals who are posing as representatives for the wireless provider to gain access to homes.
A New London customer called Cellcom Tuesday to report that two men in an unmarked truck arrived at his home and stated they needed to go inside to check on something that was causing interference with one of the cell site towers. The homeowner refused to let the individuals inside and called the police to report the suspicious activity.
Cellcom immediately checked vehicle GPS logs for Cellcom and its sister company, Nsight Telservices, and determined no company vehicles were in the New London area today. Cellcom contacted the Waupaca Sheriff’s Department and an incident report has been filed.
Cellcom advises customers to be wary of any one who attempts to gain access to their home and is not clearly identified as a company representative. All technicians for Cellcom and Nsight Telservices carry identification and will present this ID to a customer before asking to enter a residence. The technicians drive vans that display the Cellcom or Nsight Telservices logo.
To report any suspicious activity, call Cellcom at 800-236-0055 or call the police.
