ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) – Laclede Gas is warning its customers of a possible scam artist going around the St. Louis area posing as one of their utility workers. The con man then gains access to your home in an attempt to burglarize it.

Laclede Gas wants to reminds its customers that all their service technicians are in uniform, carry company-issued photo ID and drive vehicles marked with the company logo.

Customers are encouraged to contact our customer service line at 314-621-6960 with questions regarding a service call, to verify that service work is scheduled at their residence, or to verify the identity of an onsite service technician before allowing any individual access to their property.

Anyone who is approached by any individual claiming to be an employee of Laclede Gas who is not in uniform, carrying a photo ID bearing the Laclede Gas logo and driving a Laclede Gas vehicle is encouraged to notify the police and then call Laclede Gas at 314-621-6960.
