PHONE SCAM IN PROGRESS
Troopers have received several calls from businesspeople, who report callers demanding immediately payment using a prepaid debit card, or service will be cut.
The suspected scammers also provide a call-back number with a recorded greeting similar to NYSEG’s.
Never trust anyone who calls you and asks you to make a payment using a prepaid card, the troopers cautioned. If you have any questions about your bill, contact NYSEG directly.
