BBB: Scammers are claiming you have an overdue Consumers Energy bill and your utilities will be shut off
December 26th, 2019
The Better Business Bureau wants to warn you about a recent utilities scam where thieves are targeting businesses!
The scammers are calling up businesses and saying “You have an overdue bill and if you don’t pay the amount due, your utilities will be cut off.” As you can expect, the scammers then try to get your credit card info over the phone…
Most utility providers don’t threaten to shut your utilities off over the phone. Companies send a series of letters that gives a definitive disconnection date due to unpaid bills.
Have thieves ever tried to call and scam YOU out of money?
