HALIFAX, N.S. – Scammers are continuing to come up with ideas to try to cheat people out of their money.
Nova Scotia Power is warning customers about three scams that have recently been reported, with individuals pretending to represent the company and demanding money to avoid disconnection.
In one scam, a caller asks customers to physically meet and pay to avoid disconnection. In another, customers are asked to call 1-800-728-9720. In a third, a man enters a business with a false invoice and demands payment.
Earlier this fall people were receiving text messages, asking them to click on a link to receive a refund from Nova Scotia Power.
The company recommends that any time customers receive unexpected communications about bill payments or credits that appear to come from them, they should call the customer care centre at 1-800-428-6230 (Monday to Friday, 8 a.m.-8 p.m.) or email firstname.lastname@example.org
