Be Aware of SoCalGas Scam

A door-to-door salesman/scam artist was reported in Tustin today. He claimed that he could install an earthquake valve on the gas meter, and that SoCalGas would provide a rebate. 


SoCalGas does not have a rebate for any earthquake valve.  SoCalGas actually doesn't recommend them because unless there is a leak, there isn’t a reason to turn off a gas meter.  One of the most important times to be able to boil water for safety is after an earthquake. 

The scam artist happened to knock on the door of a SoCalGas employee, who immediately called Tustin Police.  Per SoCalGas, these types of scams are especially common after earthquakes.
