Scam artists calling PSNH customers, demand money

BRISTOL — Police are investigating a rash of calls from scam artists posing as representatives of Public Service of New Hampshire claiming a person’s power is going to be shut off, police said in a release.

The callers claim that shutting off power is imminent and demand payment over the phone, the release said. Police said customers should refuse to provide any personal information to the caller and should contact PSNH or police.“The privacy of our customers and security of their information is critical. Customers who are scheduled for disconnection due to nonpayment always receive written notice that includes the actions they can take to maintain service,” said PSNH spokesman Martin Murray. “Any customer receiving a call like that described by the Bristol authorities should hang up and call our customer service.”PSNH’s customer service number is 1-800-662-7764.
