City Officials Advise of Suspects Attempting to Gain Access to Homes by Impersonating Gas Employees
2011-01-10 · By Editor
The community should be aware that all Long Beach Gas and Oil (LBGO) employees have their City identification with them at all times and must present it upon request. LBGO representatives that respond to investigate leaks, light pilots, and check appliances will also be in their full LBGO uniform. If a resident is still uncertain as to the legitimacy of a gas utility service call, they may call LBGO’s 24-hour dispatch center, 562-570-2132 or 2133, to determine the validity of the employee and the service call.
Additionally, residents should never hesitate to ask for proof of identification from any service provider before allowing them access into their home or business. If residents aren’t convinced that the employee is a legitimate representative of the company, they should contact the company directly for verification. Residents should always call 9-1-1 to report any suspicious persons or activity at anytime of the day or night.
