Peterborough Utilities Customers Warned of Telephone Scam

Peterborough Utilities customers should be aware of a telephone scam currently being reported in Guelph. Guelph Hydro customers are receiving phone calls from someone claiming to represent Peterborough Utilities and threatening disconnection of electricity service if an overdue account is not paid within 30 minutes through a wire transfer or pre-paid credit card.

Customers are reminded that Peterborough Utilities never asks for bank information, a pre-paid credit card payment or wire transfer for overdue accounts.
