Slopies Too Savvy for Very Sophisticated Scam Artist


In Park Slope, apparently there is a thief going around pretending to be from Con Ed. But no surprise that those Slopies — one third of whom have master’s degrees or higher — are too savvy for such sleight-of-hand. “Today he buzzed my downstairs buzzer,” said one local.”When I said all the meters were downstairs, he insisted that he needed to come in and see me. I said no!” Let’s just hope this scammer doesn’t get his hands on those dimmer bulbs in Cobble Hill. [Gowanus Lounge]
