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.
THIS IS FALSE
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.
