PEARL RIVER, NY March 2, 2015 --- Orange and Rockland Utilities, Inc. urges its customers to ask to see a photo identification card from utility workers certifying that they are O&R employees or contractors before doing any business with them or allowing them to enter customers’ homes.
The utility renews this warning periodically to put its customers, especially the elderly, on guard about crooks who pose as utility workers in order to gain access to and rob the homes of unsuspecting residents.
All O&R employees are required to carry color photo I.D. cards during their workday. If a person comes to your door claiming to be an O&R employee, look for the card. If you cannot see one, ask the worker to produce the card for your inspection before speaking with him or her further, or permitting entry to your home.
O&R contractors, such as tree-trimmers, also carry O&R-logoed photo I.D.s and are authorized to perform work on the Company’s behalf.
If individuals representing themselves as O&R employees or contractors cannot produce a legitimate photo I.D. card, terminate further contact with them and call the police.
If the workers do produce an identification card but you are still apprehensive, call O&R at 1-877-434-4100 and ask to speak to a Security Services representative to confirm the identity of the O&R employee or contractor.

In addition to normal office hours in Rep. Maloney's district office in Newburgh, satellite office hours will offer constituents to visit have the opportunity to share any questions, comments or concerns with a constituent advocate, who is available to assist with any problems folks from the Hudson Valley may be having with a federal government agency, such as the Social Security Administration, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or the Veterans Administration.
"I'm here to work for folks in the Hudson Valley, and our office is here to be their advocate and help cut through any bureaucratic red tape of the federal government," said Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney. "Too often people feel like no one is fighting for them, and while my district office in Newburgh is at the crossroads of the district, holding satellite office hours will allow my constituent advocates to be more accessible to folks all across the Hudson Valley."
Representative Maloney's office has handled over 1,000 new cases, and so far, Rep. Maloney has helped return $1,111,369 to Hudson Valley taxpayers who were owed Social Security checks, veterans' benefits, tax refunds and other payments from the federal government.
