Power Scam Reported In FDL

Alliant Energy officials say three of their customers in Fond du Lac reported getting calls from someone representing Alliant or Wisconsin Power and Light saying they were in danger of having their power disconnected. The caller says if they don’t make an immediate payment their power will be shut off. They urge the customer to get pre-paid debit cards to make the payment. Alliant officials says those calls weren’t from them. The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture Trade and Consumer Protection reports they have received similar complaints from customers of other power companies in the state.
