Utilities billing scam hits WNC

The Better Business Bureau of Northwest North Carolina is receiving calls from area residents who have received suspicious emails appearing to be bills sent by PG&E.

While Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is a real business, the BBB has confirmed this is an e-mail billing scam. There has been no security breach, and the information referenced in the email message is not legitimate, the bureau reports. PG&E is investigating the situation along with the appropriate authorities.

Any resident who believes they have received one of these emails should not respond, click any links in the message, open any attachments or provide any personal information.They may also forward the email to PG&E at corporatesecurity@pge.com.
