Beware of Common Utility Scams
Sadly, scams happen all the time, and it's up to each of us to protect ourselves, our friends, and our family from being a victim of a scam.
Here are 4 common scams for utility companies, like Franklin PUD.
- Disconnection Deception - Scammers call threatening disconnection of your utility service and demand immediate payment by prepaid card or credit card.
- Overpayment Tactic - Scammers call claiming you've overpaid your bill and need you to provide bank account information or a credit card number to facilitate a refund.
- Number Spoofing - Scammers spoof a callback number that closely resembles the phone number of your utility company.
- Door Knocking Imposter - Scammers pose as utility workers and go door-to-door to gain entry or access into a person's home.
