BERLIN — As part of Utilities United Against Scams, a consortium of over 100 energy companies, Eversource is urging its customers to beware of scammers. A common scam affecting Connecticut Eversource customers involves a fraudster calling and stating that due to a customer’s “delinquent” account, a truck has been dispatched to disconnect their service unless a payment is made within a small time frame. Scammers usually demand immediate payment with a prepaid debit card, such as Green Dot MoneyPak, Vanilla or Reloadit purchased from a local retailer, in order to stop the disconnection of services. The scammers will provide the victim with a phone number to call back with their prepaid debit card information. To report a scam, call 800-286-2000.
