Warning Issued for Virginia Utility Billing Scam

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has issued a warning about scam phone calls from people claiming to be employees of Dominion Virginia Power, Shenandoah Valley Electric Cooperative or Rappahannock Electric Cooperative, threatening to shut off electric service unless a delinquent bill is paid within a matter of hours.  The scammers then instruct customers to buy a prepaid debit card, load money onto the card and pay over the phone.  For more information about the scam and for numbers to call to report or inquire about any suspicious phone calls, click here.
