A door to door Hydro scam is targeting residents of the town of Kapuskasing. The town is aware of the issue and is advising members of the public to turn away door to door salesmen. A by-law was passed several months ago to prevent door to door sales in the area. The people going door to door will tell you they will help stabilize your Hydro bill and lock you into a contract. CAO for the town of Kapuskasing Yves Labelle says to protect yourself you should avoid showing strangers your bills.
Labelle also says to contact the Civic Centre if anyone is trying to sell you something at your door.
