Duke Energy Florida warns Tampa Bay area restaurants and small businesses to beware of utility payment scams - Duke Energy
ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. -
Duke Energy Florida has seen an increase in utility payment scams in the area. The latest targets appear to be local restaurants and other small businesses.
Several business owners have reported receiving unsolicited calls from someone who falsely claims to be a Duke Energy representative. The thief tells the customer his or her last electric payment wasn’t paid in full and service will be disconnected if a large payment isn’t made – usually within less than an hour.
