TOLEDO, OH (Press Release) -

Toledo Edison has sent out a report of potential door-to-door utility sales fraud.

The company says they've received numerous reports of sales people going door-to-door, claiming to be from Toledo Edison and promising to save people money on their electric bills.

"Toledo Edison and First Energy are not engaged in any door-to-door sales campaigns," said Regional President Linda Moss. "In some cases, we've heard the sales people have been quite aggressive. We urge our customers to remain vigilant before they admit any person to their residence, release any personal information or sign anything presented by an unsolicited visitor."

All Toledo Edison employees will have company uniforms and proper identification. The company says any customers who have doubts should call Toledo Edison at 1-800-447-3333, or call the police if the sales person acts suspiciously.
