Atmos Energy reports utility bill scam
Atmos Energy, the natural gas utility, warns its customers of a utility bill scam hitting several states.
The scam claims that President Barack Obama is providing credits or directly paying utility bills, but the customer is asked to provide a Social Security number to apply for these credits or payments.
Scammers have visited customers in person, posted fliers and used social media and texting to send messages. Atmos Energy employees always carry proper identification and never contact customers requiring personal information. Customers who believe they are a victim of the scam should contact local authorities.
If customers believe their bill has been affected, call (888) 286-6700.
