Utility scams continue throughout Rhode Island despite warning

Earlier this month, National Grid customers were warned about a rash of utility scams.

Scammers were calling businesses claiming that there was a past due balance on their account, and if the balance wasn't paid immediately over the phone, their services would be cut off.

This isn't just a problem in Rhode Island, however. Utility companies in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Alabama are also facing similar issues.

Nation Grid is reminding customers that they never request immediate payments over the telephone. Payments can be made by directly contacting customer service.

If you've fallen victim to a utility scam, you're asked to contact National Grid immediately at 1-800-322-3223.
