SFPD Issues Warning About Fraudulent Door-to-Door Visitors 20-036

San Francisco Police Department is receiving information about subjects going door to door and claiming to be employees of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) or the San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH).  These subjects are apparently asking for entry into residences to conduct inspections or searches.   Neither the CDC nor SFDPH have personnel going door-to-door conducting inspections.  

City Disaster Services Workers and volunteers are placing informational door hangers in various neighborhoods.  These persons will have City identification, and will not ask for permission to enter any residences or establishments. 

If someone claiming to be with CDC or SFDPH calls at your door, do not let them in.  Call 9-1-1 and provide the dispatcher with the suspect's description and as much detail as possible.
