Often we get calls about local “suspicious persons” in residential neighborhoods, who are going door to door. Residents are often right in being skeptical of possible scams and bogus services that are offered by door to door merchants.

In this case, we have a legitimate one to pass along that is in the area. We received an email this week advising South Bend Police of the following:

To: South Bend Police Department

This email is to advise you that we have installers in the South Bend area contacting qualified apartment dwellers and mobile home residents. Our purpose is to install FREE water saving products into their homes through a rebate from NIPSCO.

The cars that they are driving have signs on them that state: “WES (Water and Energy Solutions, Inc.) Utility Installer 1-866-611-5404.” They also have badges that state they are NIPSCO contractors.

Our purpose for this email to inform you of our presence in your city. We want to be able to work with the Police Department to get these products into qualified homes, which will save money for the dweller and the owner of the apartments and mobile homes.

Water and Energy Solutions Inc.
Brooklyn Center, MN 55430
Toll Free: 1-866-611-5404

As always, if you are doubtful of persons going door to door and claiming to be from a utility and offering services, contact that utility company to verify they have persons or contracted agents in your area, before signing up for products or services.
