Police are warning Burlington residents to watch out for solicitations of fake gas line inspections and home energy audits.

Since the beginning of August, the City of Burlington and Halton police have received more than 200 calls about a woman demanding an appointment to complete a gas line inspection of their home.

Several men have also been spotted going door-to-door to request home energy audits.

According to police, these people do not represent the City of Burlington or Union Gas — their employees don’t go door-to-door unless it’s an emergency situation, in which case they would often be with the Halton Regional Police Service or Burlington Fire Department.
