The Ninth Police Precinct said another incident occurred in Chinatown where a suspected gypsy pretended to be a Water Bureau worker. After knocking on the door of a house, he pretended to enter the house to check the water pipes. When the owner opened the door to let the fake employee enter the house, the accomplices immediately came into the house. While searching the property, the police station urged the public not to open the door to any stranger. If the other party claims to be a government agency or law enforcement officer, they should first call the police station to make inquiries or ask for help.
Police also advise that residents should have good lighting outside their homes and keep doors and windows secure. If any damage occurs, they should repair it immediately. As soon as they find any suspicious people or things, they should call the police immediately, otherwise they will give criminals a chance to take advantage of them.

The Chicago Police Department stated that Chicago city government service agencies rarely enter people’s homes. Inspection or repair, if entry services are actually required, residents will be informed by phone or letter, clearly indicating the date and time of arrival, and they will never knock on the door to request entry to the house .
The Water Conservation Bureau also said that while on duty, all Water Conservation Bureau employees will drive city vehicles with the words “Water Conservation Bureau” printed on them.

When courier service personnel arrive to deliver goods, the public can see the delivery truck parked at the door. The courier also wears company uniform as per the rules. It is unlikely that he will come alone to “check the water and electricity” or “questionnaire”, or even “send express delivery”, so the public should be alert and avoid attracting wolves into the house. To avoid this, never open the door to strangers.
