The Bottom Line: Utility Bill Phone Scam

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 10:17 PM EDT

ROTTERDAM -- Police are warning residents about a new type of scam that's using National Grid's company name.


A Bottom Line Alert from Rotterdam Police, who are now investigating the scam.


They say a business in the town received a phone call from someone claiming to be an employee of National Grid, and that person told the business it hadn't paid for a new electric meter so their power was set to be turned off.
 
To stop that from happening, the caller said the business owner could buy MoneyPak debit cards at a local store, and then turn over the code numbers on the back of the cards so the supposed employee could retrieve the money.
 
Bottom Line:  Police say this is a scam - so if you receive such a phone call, do not send any money or give out any information.
