      Hello All,

      Just wanted to alert MPD and area residents of a probable scam we got
      hit with yesterday:

      At approximately 5:45 pm yesterday (2/18/08), an African-American
      male, (approximately 35-40, 5'10, 170 pounds, average build wearing a
      thick blue jacket) came to our door in the 1500 block of West Virginia
      Ave NE.

      He did not knock on the door, but rather opened the storm door, and
      then began to turn the handle of the inner door. My wife, thinking it
      was me, opened the door and saw this man.

      The man stated he was with Washington Gas (with a Washington Gas ID
      around his neck), and that he was going door to door to see if
      residents qualified for a special program. He asked to see our
      Washington Gas bill AND our Pepco bill to see if we qualified. She
      refused and he left without fuss or incident, and then proceeded to go
      to each of the following houses down the block.

      Besides the MANY red flags, we have also contacted Washington Gas and
      have confirmed (to the best of our ability) that they aren't doing any
      such thing.

      Perhaps MPD can spend some more quality time in the area over the next
      few weeks keeping an eye out for any additional suspicious activity?

      thanks,
      Alex
