Erie County Legislator Lynne Dixon reminds residents to be mindful of any worker who shows up at their door. Recently an incident was reported in Amherst in which three unknown men gained entry into a home, robbing the owner of precious belongings, under the guise of Erie County Water Authority workers. The men also attempted to gain access into several other homes in Amherst before going to homes in Clarence and Cheektowaga.  This is not a new scam, as thieves have used this ploy for years to prey on residents. Workers from the Authority will always have a water authority identification card with a signature, a shirt, and jacket all with the same Erie County Water Authority logo as on the vehicles they drive to your home. If there is ANY doubt, please call local authorities to ensure your safety.
