Rumor Control: Fake ConEd Workers Robbing People At Gunpoint?

Earlier this summer, there were reports that fake ConEd workers were going around the Ditmas area of Brooklyn, trying to get access into people homes. Now in the aftermath of hurricane Sandy, which left a bunch of down trees and thousands without power in the tri-state area, rumors are bubbling  that ConEd imposters are robbing people at gunpoint in Yonkers and Brooklyn.

The rumors started to surface throughout Facebook this morning, with friends warning each other of the fakes.
