Odd thing at work...

I just sent the following e-mail to the Lexington Police General E-mail Address...

To whom it may concern,

My name is Kris Snyder and I work over at [redacted] on the second floor of [redacted] Mass Ave, just across the street from Town Hall.

A young woman entered our office between 2:00pm and 2:30pm Today claiming to be from Verizon trying to to sell us Verizon FiOS Business Services. She did not give us her name upon entering the office, and generally acted in an unprofessional manner. When she wanted to look up on her computer when FiOS would be available for our building, I politely asked her to leave, and she said it would "just take a minute." 5 minutes later she was still sitting there. Eventually she left us with a brochure and took one of my business cards. The name and number she wrote on the bottom of the Brochure was "Erica [redacted]" with the phone number [redacted]. When I called Verizon to complain about her demeanor, they could not find a record of her working for them (but disclaimed she could be an authorized reseller or outside contractor, and the person(s) I talked to didn't have access to that system). They also mentioned that FiOS was NOT available for our building/area, but could not tell if it was in the pipeline or not.

This entire situation feels "not right" to me, and it has occurred to me that she could have been "casing" our building, or otherwise engaged in something other than what she claimed. I'm not sure if I should be making some sort of official report, but can do so if you think that would be a correct course of action, but I definitely wanted to make some sort of effort to reach out to the authorities about this incident.

Please let me know if you would like to conduct some sort of follow up. I can be reached at this e-mail address, or at my office phone, [redacted], or on my cellphone at [redacted]. I work here Tu-Thur 12:00pm-5:00pm.

Thank you for your time.

the [redacted]s are mostly to keep this post from coming up if anyone Googles my company's information, and to protect the possibly guilty.

    This is a happy post. (I know, right? How often does that happen?) It's not going to be very long, but I wanted to make sure people knew that I am…
