Yesterday I received a phone call from someone with a thick accent who told me his company was checking the area for storm damage. They would be at my building the next day to check our roof. I hung up on him. A phone call to my landlord confirmed that no request for storm damage assessment had been made. He was unaware of any storm at all.
This morning I got another call. The first tip-off was that he asked for Alberta. Alberta was my neighbor who died a couple of years ago. The caller sidestepped that error and proceeded to try to convince me that access to the building and to my apartment was necessary to check for damage. I told him that unless my landlord accompanied him, access would be denied. What I know and he doesn't know is that my landlord is currently out of town.
We also had a very short discussion about the close proximity of my building to the police station.
Makes my day when I can get a scammer to hang up on me. :)
