NorthWestern Energy reports high volume of scam calls
NorthWestern Energy has reported an all-time high scamming situation. Scammers have been calling customers and threatening to turn off their service if the customer does not make payments immediately. In some cases, the scammers manipulated the caller ID to make it look as if the call was coming from NorthWestern Energy.
“We want our customers to know that we do not use coercive scare tactics to force customers to pay bills, and we won’t tell you your service will be shut off immediately without a payment,” NorthWestern Energy Director of Customer Care Lori St. Aubin stated in a Sept. 23 press release.
