Utility Imposter Scams
Have you ever received a call from a utility company claiming that your bill is overdue and if you don’t pay now, your power, heat or water will be turned off? That is the last thing you want in Michigan’s cold winters or hot summers. Scammers know this and will pose as utility company employees to trick you into providing money, personal or financial information. 
Michigan consumers are targeted by Utility Imposter Scams every day and increase as we approach the holiday season. This year is even worse due to the ongoing financial impacts of COVID-19. Attorney General Dana Nessel wants to help Michigan consumers recognize potential bad actors posing as utility workers, whether  in-person, by phone, text, or online.
