Spot and stop scams

Tips to stay safe

Today’s scammers are sneaky and sophisticated — targeting potential victims by phone, online, and in-person. Scammers are also known to seek out vulnerable groups, including small businesses, senior citizens, non-English speakers, and people living in low-income communities. By knowing what you can expect from PEC, you’ll be better prepared to spot a scam before it’s too late.

When we receive notice of scammers targeting our members, we work to alert you on our website and social media channels, so be sure to check these regularly. PEC is a proud member of Utilities United Against Scams (UUAS), a group of utilities committed to spreading awareness of suspicious behaviors and the evolving tactics scammers use to target consumers.
