NV Energy says stolen company uniforms are being used to try to get into houses and rob people.
“NV Energy has learned that persons wearing stolen NV Energy uniforms are knocking on doors in the Las Vegas area in an attempt to gain access to homes in order to commit robbery,” the company said in a release.
Real NV Energy workers may knock on the door, but they will never ask to enter if an appointment has not already been scheduled, the company said.
If someone wearing an NV Energy uniform requests entry without an appointment, the company advises residents not to allow them in and to request to see identification. Once the ID number is taken, residents can call NV Energy corporate security at 402-5007 to verify the employee.
