Local Power Company Warns Of Deposit Scam

Posted by wlpo on March 4, 2014

If you get a call in Mendota asking for a $900 electric deposit, hang up.

According to the NewsTribune, Mendota’s electric provider Constellation Energy says scammers have been calling people saying they need to pay a $900 deposit to Constellation Energy or get their power turned off.  Constellation reps say they would never call people over the phone like that.

Mendota Police Chief Tom Smith says his department is working on warning people about the scam.
