Vermont’s largest power company has warned its customers to be aware of a potential consumer fraud. A spokesman for Central Vermont Public Service Corporation says a man who claimed to be a CVPS employee tried to deceive an elderly resident in Cornwall.
Utility spokesman Steve Costello says the man offered to bury the customer’s overhead power line for a $900 fee. Costello says the company does not solicit construction work. He urged anyone approached by the man to call the state police.
