San Marcos Residents Beware of Potential Scammers

San Marcos Police are warning people to beware of a potential scam involving people pretending to be City employees.

A resident of Sunset Acres, near Broadway Street, told city officials they were approached Thursday morning by three individuals claiming to be San Marcos city officials. The three suspected scammers asked to enter the premises to inspect the resident's water. Upon being denied entry, the scammers said they would return later. 

San Marcos officials state that The City of San Marcos does not conduct water testing within resident's homes. If someone claiming to be a City employee approaches you, remember to ask for identification. An official City employee will have a City-issued ID badge.

The three scammers were driving a newer model four-door white car and are described as:

  • Male, tall, thin, dark hair and mustache
  • Female, tall, thin, long dark hair, wearing black pants
  • Female, short, thin, long dark hair, wearing black pants

San Marcos Police ask that residents report any suspicious activity by phoning the non-emergency line at 512-753-2108.
