Helco warns of telephone scam

By Ken Hupp - 67AM KPUA News

Hawai`i Electric Light Company is among a trio of Hawaiian Electric Companies that are warning electric customers about an apparent telephone scam in which they receive a telephone call claiming their electric bill is delinquent and subject to disconnection. Customers receiving calls were told to make payments at certain retail stores using specific debit card services and then provide the caller with a confirmation number granting the scammer access to the customerís funds. The companies say customers should never provide personal, confidential, or financial information to any unidentified individual and should be cautious when responding to phone calls
