The Bottom Line: National Grid Phone Scam

Updated: Wednesday, March 20 2013, 01:55 PM EDT

ALBANY -- A Bottom Line Alert for customers of National Grid.


The utility warns that scammers are calling customers, and trying to get their personal banking or credit card information over the phone.


The scammers are allegedly "tricking" people into giving it out, by claiming the customer's power will be turned off if they don't disclose the information.



The Bottom Line from CBS 6's Dori Marlin?



National Grid says if you get a call from someone claiming to be with the utility, and they ask for that personal information, you need to verify they're legit.



To do that, call National Grid at 1-800-642-4272 and ask to speak with a supervisor in the disconnections department.


If you think you're a victim of the scam, you're urged to contact your local law enforcement agency immediately.
