If you receive a call saying your power will be cut off if you don't immediately pay your bill over the phone, take caution. That’s one of several scams utility customers across Texas and the nation are reporting.
Sometimes the scammers are asking the customer to make a payment through a third-party pay system or by obtaining a prepaid debit card. Unfortunately, scare-tactic scams such as this one are fairly common.
