Port St. Lucie police are warning the public involving an individual posing as a Comcast contractor attempting to collect past-due bills.
A Port St. Lucie resident in the 400 block of SE Doat Street told police a man claiming to work for the cable company came to her home around 4:15 p.m.
The person was wearing a shirt with Comcast insignia, a company hat, a Comcast badge and a magnetic “Comcast” sign attached to the side of his vehicle.
The resident called Comcast and was told the company did not employ anyone by the name provided by the man, police said.
The complainant did not pay the alleged contractor and he left the area.
Comcast informed police they would not send anyone to the home of a customer to collect money and that contractors are used only to repair lines and check service.
Residents are being warned of the scam and asked to report any such activity to police.
