One man in East County is going house to house claiming to be your neighbor and asking for your hard earned cash, residents said.
Victims said a clean-cut man dressed in a button-up shirt and khaki pants with a backpack have come knocking on their doors, asking for cash for gas after his wife left for work and took all the money from his wallet.
A warning posted on East County Emergency Updates Facebook page said neighbors had seen the man in La Mesa as well as Santee.
Neighbors reported the story to the Sheriff’s Department. Deputies came out to the area and patrolled but did not find anyone.
