Winnipeg police are warning the public to be vigilant when approached at the door by people claiming to represent a business.
During an incident Thursday evening, a 46-year-old woman answered the door in the area of Plessis Road and Pandora Avenue West, where a suspicious man claiming to be with MTS asked to enter her residence. The woman refused and told him she wasn’t interested. The man, who was wearing a jacket with the MTS logo embroidered on it, left the area.
