Police warn of utility scam

By 67AM KPUA News

Police say a telephone utility scam is currently making the rounds and are urging you to be on alert.

A Hilo woman reported receiving a call from someone posing as a representative of Hawai`i Electric Light Company, who claimed her electric bill was overdue and threatened to shut it off unless she paid the bill.

Officers say you should not respond to requests for information or payment by telephone or through the internet. If you think a notification is legitimate, you can confirm it by calling the published phone number in the phone book, and not any number you receive over the phone or internet.
