A Colorado Springs woman reported that a man she felt was an impostor came to her home Tuesday, pretending to be a Qwest worker. Qwest has responded Wednesday saying the man was a Qwest employee and the reporting woman was never in danger.

The report came from a woman at the Cottonwood Terrace Apartments near Union and Dublin on the North side of Colorado Springs. The tenant tells 11 News that a white man in a beanie cap came to her door, and told the woman he wanted to interview her about her service.

The woman told 11 News she locked the man out and called Qwest to see if they had a worker in the area. Qwest apparently told her they didn't have a worker at her address.

11 News tried to call Qwest Tuesday for a statement, however, our call was not returned until Wednesday. Qwest told us on Wednesday that the man was a Qwest employee.
