***equipment Theft Alert!!***

Hello, LCOs. For those of you who are not aware, an organized theft scam has made the news here in Atlanta, and may start occurring in your local area too. Thieves have been calling LCOs, impersonating landlords and/or homeowners to do "estimates" at "their" properties. Most of these properties are vacant/foreclosed houses. When the LCO is shown the backyard by the "occupant", someone else will clean out the trailer. The police have had a difficult time trying to charge people because no one occupant has matched the description of another, and no "landlord" has matched the description of another. Just thought you should be on your guard. As far as I know, thefts have occurred in Cobb, Fulton, Gwinnett, Clayton, Dekalb, and Fayette counties. I view this industry as a sort of brotherhood: BE ON YOUR GUARD.
