False DTE repairman reported

Westland residents are being cautioned to demand identification before allowing anyone claiming to be a utility worker into their homes.

DTE recently posted an advisory warning residents in Westland and Canton Township that company officials had received reports of an individual driving a white truck with a DTE Energy logo going door-to-door in Westland and Canton neighborhoods attempting to gain access into residents' homes under the guise of a repair. 

DTE officials reminded residents that all DTE employees are required to wear a company identification card and will produce that card upon request.  Any resident with questions or concerns is urged to contact DTE at 800-477-4747 or contact their local police department, the prepared statement noted.
