Victim Location 44129
Type of a scam Utility
I received a call on my home telephone last Friday. I felt the call was suspicious. The caller had a heavy accent. Said he was calling from the company Utility Gas & Power. He gave me the phone number 885-747-4931. Located in Columbus OH. Offering a lower electric rate. I would only pay 4.99. He already had my name and address. He asked for the twenty digit customer number on my bill. I gave it out over the phone. He said thank you for joining Utility Gas & Power and hung up. I called my two utility companies. I should call them back in two days. They will terminate if it was switched. When I call back the phone just rings. I feel it is a scam. He had also said if I opt out before three months I have to pay $150. I wanted to report the call.
