Enmax has a pretty spooky warning for Calgarians.

The company says two men are trying to enter people's homes in the Dover area by claiming they're employees of the electricity company.

The individuals tell homeowners they are there for an "efficiency check" and ask to check their furnace, the company said in a statement Wednesday. They also say that a letter notifying the resident about the visit was sent.

Enmax says it does not send employees door-to-door.

"We want people to know that anyone attempting to gain entry to a home in this way is not a representative of our company and should not be allowed in," Doris Kaufmann Woodcock, a spokesperson for Enmax, said in the statement.

The company is working with Calgary police on the issue.
