(Undated) – One of the region’s largest utility operators is warning of a potential scam targeting clients. National Grid says a number of customers have reported receiving calls threatening them with immediate shutoff unless they provide credit card or bank account information. Company officials say they do contact customers with past-due balances to offer them payment options, but never ask for personal financial information over the phone. Anyone who receives such a call should give no information, and instead contact National Grid or their local police department.
