Some residents of Meade were reportedly being scammed by a pair claiming to be electricians.

On the City of Meade, Kan., Facebook page, a post said on Tuesday night, two guys in the town were portraying themselves as electricians.

The two were allegedly telling people there was a problem with the electric work in their house that needed immediate attention and then charging the citizens a fee for fixing it.

“Please do not fall victim to this scam,” the post read. “A city electrician will never come to your house to fix a problem in the house. We only work on the outside electric lines. Please be cautious.”

In a comment to the post, the City of Meade said the two “electricians” may be driving a newer brown F-250 Ford pickup.
