PG&E Warns Of Possible Scams In The Area

PG&E is warning about possible scams in the area. Currently, the scam that is ramping up is the old IRS scam, where someone claims to be from the IRS saying you owe money. They are aggressive and threaten to arrest you if you don’t pay right away. Of course, the IRS says they will never make calls like that. And PG&E’s Brandi Merlo says it is a good reminder that people keep trying scams like this. As far as PG&E goes, they have seen recent scams involving imposters posing as PG&E employees, including going door-to-door, sending phishing emails asking for payment and making phone calls threatening shut-offs. Merlo says you should always ask for ID, never respond to phishing emails or click on links and don’t pay anyone over the phone unless it is a call you initiated. In all cases, PG&E actively works with law enforcement to help stop any scam impacting customers. Anyone who has received a call, email or visit from imposters claiming to be PG&E employees can report it immediately by calling PG&E at 1-800-PGE-5000.
