Two new phone scams are targeting EPB Electric Power customers, who are getting calls from 901.877-6520. The scammers seem to be targeting Hispanic customers, said officials.
One scam demands $450 for an electric meter swap. The other scam asks for a $495 deposit, and in return they’re reimbursed for higher winter bills and their monthly bills reduced to $65.
Customers are told to pay the fees with a reloadable debit card like MoneyPak.
EPB never demands payment with a reloadable debit card, and their local number is 648-1372.
