As you may recall, we posted an alert on a tree trimming scam that we were advised about by one of our community members last week. One of our local news stations ran a story on the scam last night and spoke to both myself as well as the tree trimming service. A link is provided below. The reason we are posting this is as a reminder that solicitors in the city are required to have a permit provided by the City of Albuquerque and they must produce it on their visit if asked to do so. As you will see by the story, this person was not an employee of the reputable tree trimming service here in Albuquerque. It was verified with them that this individual was not their employee. A reminder was also sent yesterday in reference to Door to Door solicitors with safety tips and requirements for them. Remember to come by and pick up a No Solicitor sign from one of our substations!
