Callers threaten to disconnect services unless they receive payment
FRANKFORT, Ky. (June 15, 2016) — Attorney General Andy Beshear issued a Scam Alert to warn Kentuckians of con artists pretending to be utility company employees. The scam has largely targeted small-business owners and senior citizens.
The scammers claim to represent the customer’s utility company, saying they are collecting payment for an overdue bill. Customers are threatened with having their service disconnected if they do no pay immediately.
