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.

    Why would ANYONE EVER lket anyone into their home without there having been a prior appointment made. The defect here is that any company, utility or other entiy can even ever get away with just ahving people show up in he first place. No ID from any entity - even the supposed law enforcement ones is remotely convincing or worthy of acceptance at face value. There is far too much fragmentation of law enforcement in the US to accept those. The only way I'd ever let anyone have admittence to my house - and that would be with a warrant - would be the ACTUAL olice and they'd have to show up in uniform and with marked vehicles and there woul always have to be at least a pair of such indviuduals too! For anyone to accept anything less from any organisation is wrong and it is rephrenehsible of any such to actually permit the cocntinuation of the ASSUMPTION that entry will ever be provided.

    So, she locked him out and called Qwest. Then? Is he still standing out on her porch waiting for his access to be granted? Did he run? Is he just waiting outside her door still? What happened with him? Hello....

    this is why if you are not invited to my home and you show up anyway you risk being shot.
