Versant Power: Versant Power Awareness Campaign on Utility Scams – Marketscreener.com | Team Cansler

Utility fraud awareness campaign initiated by Versant Power

Release date: 14.11.2022

This week, Versant Power is participating in National Consumer Protection Week to educate consumers about utility scams through Utilities United Against Scams.

Scammers continue to use sophisticated tactics, often threatening to disrupt utility services unless an immediate payment is made using a prepaid debit card, gift card, cryptocurrency, or third-party digital mobile payment applications.

“If you receive a suspicious call from someone claiming to be a Versant representative, hang up the phone and call us directly at 207-973-2000,” said Dave Bowler, security specialist at Versant Power. “A Versant representative will never call you and demand immediate payment under threat of disconnection. If the call you’re getting doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t.”

If you ever have questions about your account status, balance, payment options, or anything else related to your Service, please contact our Customer Contact Center. If you were the victim of the scam and paid the fraudulent caller, we encourage you to report the scam to your local law enforcement agency as well as the Attorney General’s Office. The AG can be reached toll-free at 1-800-436-2131 or by email at consumer.mediation@maine.gov.
