The Stonington Police Department is advising residents in town to be cautious of people who are willing to give people deals on their electric bills after the recent hurricane and nor'easter.
Police received a call from a resident who was contacted by a possible scam. However, the resident did not give out any personal information, police said.
"I wanted all of you to be aware that more attempts to scam after these recent storms most likely will occur," said police Capt. Jerry Desmond. "Be aware and suspicious of calls such as these and investigate thoroughly before providing anyone with personal information."
Anyone with any information about these scams is asked to call the Stonington Police Department at 860-599-4411.
