North Georgia EMC: Watch out for fake utility workers

DALTON, Ga. -- In the aftermath of last week's devastating storms, North Georgia EMC crews are working hard to finish cleaning up.

Other personnel are trying to distribute important information to NGEMC members who have experienced storm damage.

Officials warn residents to watch out for scam artists trying to impersonate utility crew members, FEMA personnel or other crisis relief workers.

If you question whether someone claiming to be with NGEMC is an actual employee, asking for identification and call the nearest office to check his or her status. All official workers carry ID badges with the company name, employee name and picture.

The local effort helped to celebrate the national launch of DASANI PlantBottle® packaging – a 100 percent recyclable bottle made of up to 30 percent plants.

More than 1,000 Atlanta residents were “caught,” by the DASANI Blue Crew, being environmental do-gooders.
