(WGGB) — National Grid is warning customers of a scam that is making the rounds locally.
Several customers say they have been receiving phone calls from someone that claims to be from National Grid, demanding immediate payment and bank information for a past due balance or their service will be shut off.
National Grid warns that they never demand direct payments over the telephone.
They do contact customers, but offer several payment options.
Any customer who has received these calls should contact National Grid immediately at (800) 322-3223.
