Electric Company Scam!

Don’t Be Scammed!!

Residents and business owners of Tyngsboro and the area communities, please BE AWARE of a recent scam some of our business owners have been the victim of!

If you receive a call from someone claiming to represent your electricity provider, and they threaten to turn off your electricity immediately because you haven’t paid your bill, you are most likely receiving a fraudulent phone call and are being scammed.

DO NOT GIVE OUT ANY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION!

DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY!

Instead, call a phone number YOU look up for your electricity provider and inquire the status of your account as well as report the scam to them.  Also report the scam to the police department so we are aware of the volume of calls going out there for this type of scam and the areas of our town effected.

If your power is out due to a storm and someone calls claiming to be from your power company, do not give them any of YOUR information and do not send them money.  Instead, call a phone number YOU look up for your electricity provider, and report the outage to them.

Stay vigilant and don’t be scammed.
