The Truro Police would like to make the public aware of scam involving Eversource.
A citizen was contacted by someone posing as a Eversource employee and demanded payment for unpaid bill or their power would be turned off within half an hour. The number that came up on the phone was actually an Eversource number.
Eversource said it’s company’s representatives will never ask for instant payment in person or over the phone.
The best thing their customers can protect themselves is to verify if a caller is legitimate by asking them to provide basic information about the account in question — such as the account address or the exact past due balance.
