Officers of the Homer Police Department warn of a phone scam being reported in our area.
Someone calls from an “888” number claiming to be from National Grid.
The number may appear as National Grid on your caller I.D.
The caller will claim you need to pay an outstanding bill or your power will be turned off.
You will be encouraged to pay the bill by purchasing Green Dot Gift Cards.
If you receive a similar phone call simply hang-up.
National Grid may call customers to offer payment options but it never demands direct payment over the telephone and do not ask for gift cards.
