Tax Scam






FirstEnergy Warns Customers About Scam:  FirstEnergy is warning customers about a scam involving a telephone caller posing as a utility company employee threatening to shut off power unless an immediate payment is made using a pre-paid debit card such as a Green Dot card.  Scams involving callers asking for utility bill payment via Green Dot cards have been reported by customers in all of FirstEnergy's service areas.  FirstEnergy and its utilities do not require payment over the phone via specific means, including Green Dot cards.  Moreover, FirstEnergy's utilities do not demand payment over the phone to avoid an impending termination of service.  "If you receive a call demanding payment via a specific option, including a Green Dot card, it's a scam, and you should report this crime to your local authorities," said Ronald I. Green, vice president, Customer Service, FirstEnergy.  "While we may phone a customer whose bill is in arrears to remind them a payment is due, we would explain how a payment can be made using established payment options."

Potomac Edison Scam:  The Frederick Police Department is warning citizens of telephone calls coming from people who claim to be employees of Potomac Edison and claim the victims owe money.  Police said they have received several reports recently of victims getting calls from subjects claiming they owe money on their electric bill and that their electric will be shut off by the end of the day if they do not pay money right away.  Citizens are encouraged to contact the Frederick Police Department to report any suspicious telephone calls/activities by calling 301-600-2102.
