Community Water Update flyer may be a scam

The Posen Water Department has been notified of a flyer that was distributed to homeowners with the words “Community Water Update” in large letters with the residents name and address listed to call a phone number with a 7 7 3 area code as soon as possible. This flyer was not distributed by the village and does not represent the Village of Posen in any way. We are telling residents do not call the number. The number listed does not represent a valid business and the solicitors were not licensed to operate in the Village. Never give any personal information over the phone through a solicitation like this. If you ever have any doubts or concerns please call the village hall. Do not let anyone into your home to do water samples
