The Marion County Sheriff’s Office and Knoxville Waterworks are reminding people to be aware of fraudulent insurance offers for water service lines. The Knoxville Waterworks tells KNIA/KRLS that a company called HomeServe has offered such insurance to area residents. While such a service may be valuable and legitimate, the Waterworks does not endorse HomeServe, and has provided no information to them. The Waterworks suggests to be sure the offer is made by a reputable company before purchasing such insurance. For more information, call Knoxville Waterworks at 828-0557.
An example of such a fraudulent letter is at the top of this story.
