It involves individuals posing as city officials going door-to-door and asking to inspect the water and sewage infrastructure in the home, the city wrote in a press release on Thursday.

“Do not allow these people in or around your home,” the press release said.

The city reminded residents that its employees always travel in vehicles with the Ottawa logo and that entry to the home is always planned in advance, except in emergencies.

City officials do not contact residents to sell products or services, the city added, and they always carry ID with them, which residents have the right to request.

The city said it will call 311 to report suspicious visits or phone calls, or to discuss concerns.
