DATCP Warns of Utility Scammers


With winter on the way expect an increase in the number of utility scams. Michelle Reinen is the Director of the Bureau of Consumer Protection for the state. She says scammers will prey on the fears of utility customers posing as representative of a utility threatening to shut off power for unpaid bills if you don’t pay up immediately. The caller is willing to take information over the phone about how you will pay if you volunteer it. The scammer may also suggest that you obtain a money card to pay for the bill. Reinen says a utility would notify you through the mail if you were in danger of being disconnected. Wisconsin has a heating moratorium which prohibits utilities from disconnecting customers for overdue bills from November 1st through April 15th.
