Don’t Fall for Phone Scam
Alameda Municipal Power (AMP) warns the public it has received reports of scam calls demanding immediate payment from customers, saying their electric accounts will be disconnected. The scammers ask customers to pay their AMP bills at CVS, according to customers. In addition, the scammers spoof caller-ID information to make it appear that their calls are from AMP.
Any call demanding immediate payment on an account is suspicious. AMP will never ask for credit 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.
Call Alameda Police Department to report suspicious calls at 337-8340.
