Niagara Falls residents warned about door to door salespeople
Niagara Falls residents are being advised to be wary of door to door salespeople selling water filtration equipment or requesting an inspection of your water lines.
The city's website warning residents that recent complaints indicate the salespeople are telling residents they're working in conjunction with the City of Niagara Falls or the Province.
They are also requesting personal information on your utility accounts.
The City reminding homeowners that you are not required to provide access or information to anyone and they have no association with the group, and do not sell water filtration equipment.
They're also reminding residents that city employees will always provide proper identification and will be driving in a vehicle clearly marked as The City of Niagara Falls.
Ontario has banned door-to-door sales of water filters, making this activity illegal as of March 1, 2018.
Anyone with concerns can contact the Niagara Regional Police at 905-688-4111.
