Eversource is warning customers to be on the lookout for scammers posing as power company employees.
The company said they’ve received reports that scammers are approaching customers in outage areas and demanding payment to restore power. Eversource stresses that their crews are working to restore power and would never ask for additional payment from customers.
The scammers have been reported in Westport and Norwalk.
Anyone with questions or concerns can contact Eversouce at 800-286-2000 or call the local police department.
