August 20, 2014
  Hicksville, NY (PRWEB) August 20, 2014       Imposters and scammers are posing as utility employees and robbing customers on Long Island and in Queens at their doors and over the phone. National Grid has put its employees and contractors on heightened alert and reminds customers to do the same to ensure safety and security.       Every National Grid employee carries a photo ID card, and any contractor doing work for the company is also required to carry a National Grid ID. If someone requesting entry into your home or place of business does not show an ID card, don't let them in and call National Grid at 1-800-930-5003 for Nassau, Suffolk County and the Rockaway Peninsula or 718-643-4050 for Brooklyn, Staten Island and parts of Queens. If customers feel there is an immediate danger, they should call 911.           National Grid has implemented a successful pilot program in several towns and neighborhoods contacting customers before a meter reader comes to their home. National Grid has worked with Senator Schumer on getting the word out. However, National Grid's long term solution to customer privacy and security lies in the roll-out of its Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) program. This program would allow for monthly meter readings to be collected by driving by a customer's home without accessing the property.
