Today, I wanted write to you about something that came to my attention, which I found quite troubling. Over the last few weeks, reports have come in from residents of people impersonating the Village of Florida building inspector as well as Orange and Rockland utilities employees.
If you encounter someone claiming to be an employee of the Village and are unsure, do not hesitate to call Village Hall at 651-7815 to verify their identity. In order to combat this, we will be aggressively working to ensure all Village employees have official employee ID badges.
Residents can also call the Village of Florida Police Department at 651-7800 to have an officer investigate. If an individual is claiming to work for Orange and Rockland, you can always ask to see their ID or call 1-845-577-3526 or 1-877-434-4100 to verify their identity.
As a reminder, don’t ever give money over the phone to anyone without verifying his or her identity first. Please share this information to help combat this fraud and ensure that we keep everyone safe.
