I&M Power says reported imposter was actually a contractor

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WNDU) After initially warning the community about a person posing as an Indiana Michigan Power employee, the company now says the individual was a contractor working for I&M.

The company had shared a picture of a white truck that appeared to have the I&M logo on the side.

I&M warned that they received reports of the driver representing himself as being affiliated with the power company.

I&M later posted the following:

CORRECTION: Upon further review into the previous scam alert post, we determined this was in fact a contractor working on behalf of I&M. We apologize for the mistake.
