Southern California Edison) Call Scam Tom @ ext. 806 Southern California Edison: Call Scam Nationwide
(Southern California Edison) Call Scam
These guys are good. They called my medical clinic & stated that they were going to shut down our power in 45 min. as a Southern California Edison Technician was coming to disconnect. I called the ***-***-**** # to handle the outstanding bill. I was updated that I was 2 months late & they sent notifications indicating that we had an outstanding bill. As I enrolled for paperless billing they stated that they will by default email the notificiations of default payments. In addition I indicated that I was on auto pay & Tom the representitive stated that if I made any changes to my acct. that my autopay wouldn't be active unless I updated my acct. at that time. Coincidentally I did have a visa that I cancelled and replaced about 2 months earlier & led me to believe that I may have forgotten to update my SCE account. Every issue I brought up with Tom he had a perfect answer to it, they are total pros and very scripted. Let's just say I was talked into going to the "SCE" payment terminal nearby which he gave me an address to a CVS Pharmacy. What it turns out they indicated for you to use the "Money Gram" & have $$ fwd. to them via a PIN # that they generate. Luckily I realized at that time it was a total scam once I got on the "Money Gram" line and had the operator clarify where was this $ exactly being sent to. They told me a company in the state of Ohio & immediately hung up the phone with the money gram operator and Tom from SCE. Right away I got 3 missed phone calls from this #: ***-***-****. These guys are sooo GOOD that they registrered this actual # which is a TRUE Southern California Edison phone number, but the # I called initially was ***-***-****.
Hope this help others not to get screwed with these guys.
Oh, they were asking for exactly $497.37:which I never paid: THANK GOD.
-I got very lucky-
