The Pacific Gas and Electric Company is warning customers to be on the look out for utility scams.
So far this year, PG&E has received more than 23,000 reports from customers who have been targeted by scammers, which has resulted in an estimated $1.3 million dollars in fraudulent payments.
PG&E says that they will never ask for financial information over the phone nor by email.
And they do not request payment by pre-paid debit cards nor payment services such as Zelle.
If you receive a call threatening disconnection, hang up and call PG&E by phone or using your online account to confirm details.
