SUEZ URGES CUSTOMERS TO CHECK IDENTIFICATION OF EMPLOYEES VISITING THEIR HOMES

SUEZ officials are urging customers to check the identification of individuals claiming to be water company employees. The company issued the advice following a report of individuals posing as utility workers.

SUEZ employees wear uniforms and I.D. badges with the company name and logo. The badge also shows the employee’s color photograph, name, job title and date the badge was issued. Customers can also look for a white SUEZ vehicle which prominently features the green and blue logo.

Customers should take a few moments to be sure that the person on their door step has the proper credentials. This is especially important if they have not called for a service visit.

A customer who has doubts should have the person wait outside. They can call SUEZ to verify that the company has sent someone to their home. They can also contact their local police department.

In Rockland and Westchester counties customers can call SUEZ at 877-426-8969.
