The Latest Scam…Marlene Hruby

Don’t be fooled by callers pretending to be from PG&E! The Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office is receiving reports of a utility phone scam and warning residents not to fall prey to it. A caller, who pretends to represent PG&E, claims that your bill has not been paid and that your electricity will be turned off within minutes – unless you provide an immediate payment by using a prepaid debit card. PG&E will never call you; they send reminder bills. So just hang up on these scoundrels!
