If someone comes to your home claiming to be from Manitoba Hydro, be careful.
Hydro is warning Winnipeg, Brandon and Selkirk that there are some fakes out there going door to door. They are claiming to need to come in to check the furnace.
Manitoba Hydro is not involved in such a program, and advises homeowners to deny entry.
Hydro adds they do go to homes for different reasons sometimes, but always have official ID, with a photo.
When in doubt, you can call Hydro.
