This was posted on the Center Precinct Facebook Page and I wanted to pass this Georgia Power scam alert on to you:
Please share this information about Scams from Ga Power. Please tell a friend: Scammers are at it again!
More than 70 customers -- residential AND business -- have told us in recent weeks how they were called by impostors threatening power disconnection if they do not pay over the phone with a "Green Dot" or other type of gift card they are instructed to purchase. Once the card numbers are given, the caller and the customer's money are gone.To view GA Power's press release on this issue, see http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/08/26/ga-georgia-power-tips-idUSnPNCL69351+1e0+PRN20130826
Don't be a victim! Please call us at 888-660-5890 (800-253-1077 en Español), or local police, if you receive any such call.
