Mail Scam Going Around!

They will really stop at nothing!   If you get something that looks like this in the mail, throw it in the circular file.  People around WNY are reporting receiving this in the mail.  When you call the number, they ask for the ID # on the notice.  After confirming your name and address they tell you that your water is unsafe and that they want to set up a time for “someone to come by and test their water”.  THIS IS A SCAM!!!  Please let your neighbors/elderly parent/friends know.    THROW IT AWAY.   -JAP
