Today a guy pretending to be from the water company came by and tried to come in the house. He left a letter which is fake. I googled his name and nothing pops up. The number he left doesn't belong to the water company.

I asked my parents what they want to do about it and they said they'll just file a complaint.

I'm kind of pissed because that will do nothing and he'll get away. I don't see why I can set up an appointment for him to come over and the cops can wait for him and arrest him. I feel like even if they don't want to that I should take matters into my own hands.

The police can't arrest him if he hasn't done anything illegal

He's trying to enter people's houses impersonating someone he isn't.

I'm not worried so much about myself. I'll be fine, I'm just worried it'll happen to some old lady or a teenager who doesn't know any better

Hes probably from the water company and you have no idea what you are talking about.
Furthermore theres literally nothing you can do until he does something. You can pretend to be whoever you want, just as long as you dont disrupt anything.

Unless he has actually entered someone's house uninvited, he still hasn't done anything wrong. That's how the law is - it's reactive, not proactive.
>>
>>18356720
What if I invite him in the house then confront him about who he is?
>>
>>18356736
Then he still hasn't done anything illegal. What is so hard to understand about this concept?
>>
>>18356744
No, I'll confront him and see where it goes from there. Maybe he'll try to punch me or something
>>
>>18356736
He HAS to do something illegal. pretending to be someone you are not is not illegal.
>>
>>18356751
Why would he do that? What's more likely to happen is that he just leaves
>>
>>18356766
He might panic

Lawfag here.

Entering someone's home under false pretenses is certainly illegal and a felony
>>
>>18356773
Why would he panic?

And even if he did, he'd just have a charge for assault. If all he did was punch you, then that's pretty tame in the grand scheme of things and he's most likely to get away with a slap on the wrist or community service.

Your parents are right here. What you need to do is file a complaint with community watch or the police or whatever. Then they can issue a community notice telling people to look out for this guy IF they think his actions are suspicious and pose a threat.
