Scammers posing as utility company to get your money

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -

Utility companies in the east are warning customers of a new scam.

Customers are receiving calls that claim to come from their utility company, telling them there's a problem with their account and they need to pay immediately or risk having their power cut off.

The scammers use technology to fake their phone number, so caller ID's say it's coming from the actual utility company.

The attorney general's office is already aware of this scam and they're working to bring it to an end.
