BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Idaho Power is warning customers someone is pretending to be a company worker and residents shouldn’t let him into their homes.

KBOI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/P0Brl3 ) in a story on Tuesday that the company says a Boise resident recently called the company to say someone with tools knocked on his door demanding to be let in to fix the meter.

Company spokesman Kevin Winslow says the man wasn’t an employee.

The company says almost all power meters are on the outside of homes so there’s no reason for a worker to go inside.

The company says residents should call the police if someone is claiming to be with Idaho Power tries to get into the house.
