WMDT 47 NEWS - A warning for Delmarva Power customers in Delaware.
The energy company says scammers are posing as third party energy suppliers and sending fake utility bills via email. The email asks that customers click on a link contained within the email. Officials believe that by clicking the link your computer could become infected with a virus or malware.
Delmarva Power is reminding customers to only pay their utility bills through the company website or by sending the hard copy of the remittance portion of the invoice through the mail. Customers should not open any email asking that payment be made on their utility bills unless sent by Delmarva Power or the customers' respective third party energy suppliers.
When in doubt about the validity of a person's claim to represent Delmarva Power, you are urged to call the company immediately at 1-800-375-7117.
