Scam Activity Update
Utilities across the country – including electric, gas, and water – continue to see scammers trying to fleece customers.
Scam artists vary their tactics but usually pretend to be your utility. They may claim you have a delinquent account and threaten to immediately shut off service if you don’t pay a certain amount by prepaid debit card. Another recent tactic was to attempt entry into your house under the pretense they are there to change a meter and then demand a payment for installation.
Don’t be fooled. The Utility companies don’t conduct business like this. There are never on-the-spot demands for money.
If you suspect a scam, hang up. Then check with your utility company.
UGI Gas 1-800-276-2722
If it turns out to be a scam attempt, call the Pennsylvania State Police at (570) 697-2000.
PPL, PAWC and UGI continue to work with law enforcement on this issue.
