WHEN THE 10 ROLLS AROUND, PEOPLE WILL BE JUST AS EXCITED IF NOT MORE. AN OLD SKIN BUT IS MAKING HIS ROUNDS ONCE AGAIN. THIS TIME, VENGEANCE ALL ACROSS THE STATE. CRIMINALS ARE USING FEAR OF LOSING ELECTRICITY TO STILL MONEY FROM YOU. TONIGHT, WE LOOK AT WHAT IS THE DEAL WITH FAKE UTILITY BILL SCAMS. IT BEGINS WITH A PHONE CALL STATING THAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO HAVE YOUR ELECTRICITY CUT OFF WITHIN THE HOUR BECAUSE YOU DIDN’T PAY YOUR BILL. THEN THEY ASK YOU TO PAY YOUR BILL IN AN UNUSUAL WAY. ASK FOR PAYMENT SOMETIMES IN THE FORM OF A PREPAID DEBIT CARD OR THEY MASS FOR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION. THAT SHOULD BE A RED FLAG FOR YOU. THE POWER COMPANY WILL NEVER CALL AND THREATEN ANY OF — ANY DISCONNECTION. THERE IS A LENGTHY PROCESS THEY GO THROUGH FIRST. TYPICALLY, MULTIPLE NOTICES WILL BE SENT TO A CUSTOMER WHEN A CUSTOMER IS DELINQUENT. RIGHT NOW, THE SITTING THE EASTERN NORTH CAROLINA AREA. RETRACTED IN DURHAM, SMITHVILLE, GREENSBORO, AND CHARLOTTE. AND ALSO LAURINBURG. AND MILITARY COMMUNITIES LIKE JACKSONVILLE AND IN KINGSTON. THAT IS A LOT OF MONEY DISAPPEARING FROM PEOPLE’S POCKETS. RESEARCH SHOWS THAT SINCE JANUARY, MORE THAN $15,000 HAS BEEN LOST BY VICTIMS TO THE UTILITY SCAM. SOMETIMES, THE USE A METER AS AN EXCUSE COMING RIGHT TO YOUR DOOR STATING IT HAS TO BE FIXED OR THEY CAN CONDUCT AN ENERGY AUDIT. DO NOT LET THE MEN A CALL THE COPS. THEY MAY BE STEALING VALUABLES AS WELL. HANG UP IF YOU GET ONE OF THESE CALLS. REMEMBER THAT NO UTILITY
