POWAY ---- Police are warning residents against suspected scammers posing as water-quality testers and seeking entry to people's houses in Poway.
Residents told police that people have been going door to door saying they're ready to test the homes' water quality. They carry a badge and present blue door hangers written in Spanish.
Police said city crews are not conducting water-quality tests and do not ask for entry into houses. Anyone approached by a would-be tester should call the city at (858) 668-4401 or the sheriff's office at (858) 513-2800.
