Utility scam targets businesses

Several business owners in the Chesterfield area reported receiving telephone calls from people posing as Duke Energy employees who threaten to disconnect the business’ power unless payment is made with a prepaid gift card.

Chesterfield Police Chief Eric Hewett advises the public to hang up on the callers.

Anyone who receives such a call should contact the Chesterfield Police Department at (843) 623-2419 or Duke Energy at the telephone number on the power bill.
