Southern California Edison (SCE) Scam attempted to pay Electric Bill Nationwide
I received a phone call from this number 844-388-3482 with a womans voice stating that she was a representative from Southern California Edison disconnection department and that a payment had to be made today to avoid shut-off of me electric service. Then she proceeded to give me that number to call, which I did and it sound exactly like the automated Edison choose options.
After I waited a few seconds another so call rep. answered and asked me for my account number and put me on hold for another few seconds, He told me that my electric bill was due and that a cash payment had to be made today for XXX amount to avoid disconnection and additional charges. At that point he proceeded to tell me that it had to be in cash in a form of a pre-loaded card sold in a well know market.
To my good luck I had just made my electric bill payment at an authorized utility pay location of which I went back and explained to them what just happened, fortunately they told me that it seemed like it was a scam and to call a different number for Edison. After I made the call to EDison and confirmed that my payment was received I also informed them about what had happened. They took notes and they already know whats going on out there.
So be carefull if you see this phone number pop up in your caller ID or cell phone and don't fall for it. This scamers are investing a lot of money to sound like the real Edison, they are not.
