Seattle City Light is warning customers about a recent telephone scam. At least four customers have reported phone calls from people claiming to be Seattle City Light employees. The callers claim there is a problem processing the customer’s payment by check and ask for credit card information to resolve the matter. The cons appear to be targeting customers with Asian surnames.
"There is no reason Seattle City Light would be calling customers in this manner," customer care director Kelly Enright said in a news alert. "We don’t do business that way."
