This is intended as a public service, as to warn and remind people about opening their door to strangers, here in Korea.

While South Korea is a much safer place to live than many other cities I’ve lived in, there can still be problems that need to be avoided, for example: early this morning, I was awakened by the door bell and the sound of my young daughter talking to someone at the door.  When I came out, there was a man standing outside the doorway, wearing a black and white striped rugby-style shirt.  The man caught a glimpse of me and ran off.  This man claimed that he was from the water company and that there was a leak in my bathroom.

There is NO LEAK and water company workers DO NOT make house calls on Sundays nor do they show up without a prior invitation from home owners.
