CRIME ALERT!
Utility Bill Scams Continue to Target Southern California Edison Customers

Southern California Edison (SCE) is advising customers to be aware of utility imposters claiming to be with SCE and demanding immediate payment to avoid disconnection of service for allegedly past due electricity bills. The caller demands that the customer purchase a prepaid cash card for a specific amount of money, call the imposter back, and give that person the card number.

Customers suspecting a fraudulent call should ask for the caller’s name, department and business phone number. Customers should terminate the call and report the incident immediately to local police and SCE at 1-800-655-4555.

SCE customers should also note that:

  • SCE will never call and demand immediate payment with the threat of service disconnection
  • An SCE employee will never ask for money in person
  • Never reveal personal information, including your credit card, ATM or calling card number (or PIN number) or SCE account number to anyone
  • If someone calls and requests you leave your residence at a specific time for a utility-related cause, call the police. This could be a burglary attempt set up by the caller
  • Be suspicious of anyone who arrives at your house without an appointment asking to check an appliance, wiring or suggesting that there may be some other electrical problem inside your residence. In most cases, but not all, appointments are scheduled with our customers. There are times when our equipment may need to be checked and an appointment is not scheduled for these types of visits. SCE employees always have their SCE ID badge displayed on their person for customers to see and you can always contact our customer service department at 1-800-655-4555 to confirm that nature of the visit.
For more ways customers can stay safe, please see www.sce.come/safety and read the section on Your Family’s Safety.
