    If the scammers come to your door, don't let them inside.

    If someone from MX Energy comes to your door asking to see your utility bill, ask for ID, do not let them inside and, above all, do not give them money, police are warning seniors in Willingboro, NJ.

    The scammers, who have been posing as workers for the utility company, promise to lower your bill if they're given an immediate payment in cash. 

    Officials say MX Energy is a real business with a permit to ask for information in Willingboro, but it is not authorized to collect payments.
