AMP Warns Customers of Phone Scam

 

Alameda Municipal Power (AMP) is warning customers of a phone scam. The municipally owned utility has received reports that scammers are impersonating its employees and demanding immediate payment from customers. In addition, AMP received a report of a caller falsely claiming to be a PG&E employee who was collecting payments for AMP.

The scammers are asking for customers’ credit card numbers and using a recording of an AMP’s employee’s voice. Residents who receive a call demanding immediate payment should be suspicious. AMP will never ask for credit card or debit card numbers and only provides automated courtesy calls to accounts that are already delinquent. When in doubt, don’t give out any information.

AMP recommends residents call the Alameda Police Department to file a report of a suspected scam at 337-8340. Find more information at www.alamedamp.com/scams.
