State Police warn about phone electric bill scam


The Delaware State Police have issued a warning  about an electric bill phone scam.

Several persons  have been contacted and told they are behind on their electric bill and need to make immediate payment over the phone using a pre-paid card  or credit card.

Prepaid cards often  do not allow victims to contest charges, since funds are already on hand.

Persons receiving such calls are asked to contact Delmarva Power  directly at their Customer Care Service number 1-800-375-7117.

In the past, electric bill  scams have, targeted ethnic  restaurants or related businesses.
