Fake Repairman Preys On Powerless Worcesterians

After ice storms slammed Boston and left thousands without power, one opportunist saw a chance to make a buck in the dark.

He’s going around Worcester saying he works for National Grid and will restore power for a fee. He doesn’t work for them and will just walk away with your money. Residents are urged to ask for ID if approached by someone purporting to be from the energy company.
