Central Maine Power Warns About Scam Calls

By  | 

AUGUSTA, Maine (WABI) Central Maine Power with a scam warning tonight.

CMP officials say someone calls threatening to cut service unless the customer makes an immediate payment over the phone using a prepaid debit card.

Sometimes the calls appear on caller ID as the utility company, other times the scammer gives a call back number that has the same recorded greeting as the CMP customer service line.

If you get a call like this, hang up.
