The Utilities District of Western Indiana REMC is warning members to be on guard against any individuals claiming permissible access to personal properties in order to perform tree trimming service. The scammers may try to gain access by trespassing, intimidation and making threats toward any opposition.
UDWI REMC has two companies under contract who are authorized to perform brush clearing and tree trimming work, Hoosier Heritage Management, LLC and Haley Bros Tree Care, LLC. Each contractor may be identified by the logo placard on the company vehicle. To protect yourself against such attempts, do not confront any unknown individuals and immediately call your local law enforcement office to report suspicious activity.
