Scam Alert (MGN Online)

Police in Phoenix are asking residents to be on the lookout after multiple reports of non-certified solicitors have been reported.

According to the Village of Phoenix Facebook page, at least three solicitors for IDT Energy were reported Tuesday. They do not have a permit to solicit in the village, police said.

Police said they spoke with IDT, who said they do not have anyone authorized to solicit for them in New York state.

Police urge residents in the area to be cautious of people coming to your doors, to safeguard your information and call 911 if someone claiming to be from IDT approaches your home.

Police said they have made one arrest Tuesday connected to these incidents.
