Another reminder to our residents to be aware of a phone scam; The caller will tell you that they are from the power company and that your power is going to be shut off immediately due to a late payment. They tell you that if you wire the money to them your service will not be interrupted.
Today, a business in Tyngsborough received this type of call, the caller stated they represented National Grid. A follow-up to National Grid confirmed that this is not a legitmate call and such a procedure would not be used by them.
If anyone receives a call like this, never pay your bill via wire transfer, call National Grid at 1-800-322-3223 to confirm with them whether you are late on a bill, call the Police Department to report the incident as well.
