Utility scam returns to the Gem State

Scammers have been at work again convincing local residents they are with a local power company in hopes of gaining money from customers. Better Business Bureau Northwest &Pacific has received reports of a scammer calling a Rocky Mountain Power customer threatening to shut her power off if her balance wasn’t paid. The impostor instructed her to purchase a money pack card and he would call back to get the information. When he called back, the customer gave him the information. He called back again, claiming new power meters would be put in her neighborhood and she would need to also pay that expense. At that point, the woman became suspicious and called Rocky Mountain Power who informed her she had been scammed.
