Bay Area Electrical Customers Targeted in Phone Scam!

Alameda Municipal Power is warning utility customers to be suspicious  if they get a call demanding immediate payments on their account due to  a phone scam.

The agency has received reports involving an automated call from  1-800-396-7024 with a fake AMP recording asking customers to provide  their name and phone number. 

That contact information is later used to call prospective victims  and ask them to pay their electrical bill using pre-paid debit cards  purchased at the Office Max at the Alameda South Shore Center.

Utility officials are urging customers to hang up immediately if they  get a call like this and report the incident to customer service at  (510) 748-3900.
