PG&E Warns of Increased Scams By Those Pretending to be the Utility

Beware of holiday scams. PG&E says it’s seen an increase in reports of people being targeted in Northern California and along the Central Coast. So far this year, at least 23-thousand say they’ve received a call from someone pretending to work for the utility company. That’s more than double all of last year. Officials say the scam has cost customers more than a million dollars in fraudulent payments.
