Watch Out for the Utility Bill Scam!

Southern California Edison is warning customers against scammers who demand immediate payment on past due utility bills.

"SCE will never call a customer to collect or demand money for past due bills," according to SCE's Consumer Affairs Manager Marlyn Denter.


- Ask for the person's name and call back number, a supervisor's name, how much money they are requesting, and the method of payment.

- Check the area code of the number you are getting a call from. If it is not an 800 number, the call is fraudulent.

- Call SCE directly at 1-800-655-4555 to ask about your bill.

- Contact local authorities if you suspect the phone call is fraud.
