Eversource is warning customers not to fall victim to a common robocall scam.
The company said scammers are sending robocalls out to customers claiming the power will be shut down in 30 minutes without payment. Some of the scammers are using technology that makes it appear that Eversource is calling on the caller ID.
Eversource stressed that these calls are not legitimate and that the company would never demand immediate payment then threaten shutoff. You can always call to verify you’re speaking with an actual Eversource representative by calling 800-286-2000.
