Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is warning customers to beware of criminals posing as PG&E employees. Last week, PG&E was made aware of a male caller who is contacting elderly customers in  the Bay Area.

The caller threatens to disconnect the customer’s electric service within the hour if they do not call back with a card number in the amount of an alleged past due bill.

Some imposters may try to gain entry into a household and steal from unsuspecting customers. Others call customers to warn that their service may be cut off if they fail to pay a past due bill over the phone with a credit card, checking account or gift card.

PG&E will never ask for personal information, a credit card number or a gift card number over the phone.

Anyone who has received such a phone call and provided credit card or checking account information should report it immediately to the credit card company or bank and police or call PG&E at (800) PGE-5000.
