With the holiday season approaching, PECO is reminding customers to stay alert for potential payment scams targeting utility customers. Scammers are using the holiday season to trick utility customers into providing their personal or financial information and making false payments under the pretense of keeping their service active.
Utility Scam Awareness Day is Wednesday, November 15 and PECO is urging customers to be on the lookout for impersonators seeking to steal money and personal information. Scammers posing as PECO employees, or an affiliate will call customers from a number that appears to be from PECO and threaten to turn off service unless payment is made.
PECO is offering the following tips:
Scammers sometimes find success with customers who may be behind on their bills and pressure them into sending immediate payment. For anyone facing difficulty paying their bill, PECO offers a number of payment assistance programs to help customers avoid late notices and disconnection. For information, visit peco.com/help.
Any PECO customer who believes they have been a target of a scam is urged to contact their local police, and call PECO immediately at 800-494-4000 to report the situation. For more information on scam awareness, customers can visit peco.com/scams.
