  • Phone scammers posing as your utility provider call and insist you are delinquent on your bill
  • Some common scam tactics include:
    • Threatening to turn off your power
    • Rigging caller ID to make it look like the call is from your utility provider
    • Telling you to put the money on a prepaid debit card and asking for the card number
  • Don’t believe it
  • Do not pay over the phone if immediate payment is demanded to avoid a disconnection
