Scammers are calling electricity customers and claiming that they will cut off power immediately unless payments are made.

Hang up! Do not provide payment or personal information. If you have concerns about the legitimacy of a utility disconnection call, hang up and contact your utility company directly, using contact information you know to be valid.

Right now, the scam is targeting Vermont electricity customers and claiming to be “Xcel Energy.” This scam has targeted utility companies, including Green Mountain Power and the Vermont Electric Co-op.

Please help us stop these scams by sharing the information with someone you know. If you have questions about this scam, or have lost money to this scam, please call the Consumer Assistance Program at 800-649-2424.
