Chicago police have a warning about two con men targeting senior citizens in one Southwest Side neighborhood.

At least four times in the past six weeks, men claiming to work for the water department have talked their way into homes in the Mount Greenwood neighborhood. Once inside, they steal items.

Police say you should always ask for ID from strangers who claim they are with organizations, utilities or city departments.
