HAZLETON, Pa. — Police in Hazleton are warning residents of a scam. They say to watch out for a fake water company worker.

A man told a homeowner on Muir Avenue he was there to test the water on Monday.

The chief tells Newswatch the scammer stole jewelry and took off.

Here’s how you can protect yourself:

  • Don’t let anyone in.
  • Call the company to make sure someone is supposed to be at your home.
  • If you have concerns, call 9-1-1 and police will verify if they should be there.

    Je tiens à dénoncer le fait que M. Philippe Ballesio m’ait fait arnaquer le 24 septembre 2018, lorsque j’ai acheté des systèmes de trading qui ne fonctionnaient jamais, ils m’ont également demandé plus d’argent pour investir soi-disant, ils m’ont demandé de déposer le nom de Philippe Ballesio sur le compte IBAN numéro de compte: FR76300030001000005765297724 appartenant à la banque Société Générale, en France. Son épouse Rosaline Ballesio est sa complice.
