Toledo Edison is warning customers about people going door-to-door claiming to work for the company. They tell homeowners they can save money on their electric bills. Some have asked to see the customers’ electric bills.

“We want our customers to know that Toledo Edison and FirstEnergy are not engaged in any door-to-door sales campaigns,” said Linda Moss, regional president of Toledo Edison, a subsidiary of FirstEnergy.

The company said all its employees and contractors have company uniforms and identification with them. Customers who have doubts about a visitor claiming to represent Toledo Edison should call Toledo Edison at 1-800-447-3333 for verification. If the visitor acts suspiciously, customers should contact the police department.
