Scammers targeting utility customers


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (October 15, 2014) – Utility companies in Arkansas and across the country are reporting an increasing number of instances where scammers attempt to extort electric customers out of cash by posing as representatives of the company and threatening to cut off customers' power.

Con artists target small businesses and homeowners, demanding that the consumer pay his or her "overdue" bill immediately, typically with an untraceable cash card, in order to avoid having electricity shut off. Most recently, an Arkansas-based electric provider learned that one scammer was even using the company's own prerecorded message in a ruse to make the scheme sound more believable.

Attorney General Dustin McDaniel issued this consumer alert on Wednesday to let Arkansas consumers know what to watch out for in the event they are targets of this widespread scam.
