Logan City Council has released a scam warning following a number of reports about people attempting to enter residential properties by claiming to be Council workers conducting an inspection.
The post urges residents to ask for Council ID if this occurs.
"Council employees who are conducting a legitimate visit to your home will show you their Council ID. If you are approached by someone who claims to be a Council worker, please ask for a photo ID and check if they are wearing Council uniform before you open the door."
"If they are unable to produce identification, please do not give them access to your property and immediately report the incident to your local police station.
