Beware of Fake Cable Guys

If anyone shows up at your door claiming to be a cable repairman, think before you let them in. Tyler police are warning people about four men who posed as technicians from Cox Communications. Officers say the men tried to get access to several people's apartments on Kinsey Drive, but the men weren't wearing Cox uniforms and didn't show proper identification. Cox Communications says its appointments are always pre-scheduled, so residents know when to expect a cable employee.
