Customers urged to ask for official company ID cards

SALISBURY – Delmarva Power
reminds home and business owners to practice safety when someone claiming to
represent a business contacts them either in person or by telephone.
Many companies, including Delmarva Power, will contact customers in person or
via phone for various reasons. If someone claims to represent a company,
whether the company is Delmarva Power or another entity, it is important that
customers take precautions to verify the person is affiliated with the company,
especially if that person is requesting an immediate monetary payment.
Delmarva Power advises customers to ask for official photo identification from
any person who shows up at their door. Employees from reputable companies will carry official company identification cards. If proper
identification cannot be produced, customers should notify police and the
company with whom the individual claims to be associated.
Similarly, if someone calls saying they represent a certain company, customers
should ask them to verify their identity and affiliation. If customers have any
doubt about the validity of a person’s claim to represent Delmarva Power, they
should call the company immediately at 1-800-375-7117.
