Beware of a New Utility Bill Payment Scam

I got a surprise this morning when I opened my electric bill from Dahlberg Light & Power. Along with my monthly bill, was notification of  a new utility bill payment scam.

It seems scammers are targeting utility customers by phone, social media, and door to door. The scammers are telling customers that a payment needs to be made on their utility bill or their service will be disconnected. They ask for personal information, social security numbers, and or, banking information.

Dahlberg says “DONT FALL FOR THIS,” and immediately contact your local authorities. Dalberg goes on to say they do not ask for your social security number, or bank account information, when contacting you about your account. If you receive a  call, message, or other request, Dahlberg suggests you contact your local law enforcement immediately and report the incident.
