Same thing! Subject said he is from Southern Cali Edison and I had an outstanding balance of over a 1000$. I told him I will go and check my statement and call back. I didn't owe Edison anything
A subject by the name of Erick Moore claimed to be a representative from SCE. He claimed I had an outstanding balance of 497 bucks and need a payment to be made. He then wanted me to get a gift card and call him back with the card number once the money was deposited. I called SCE and they said it was a SCAM!!!!!
Its A SCAM Dec 09th, 2013
Alert Just got a call for a fellow claiming to be with DTE about a payment error from our Bank to DTE. That they needed to return money to my bank for the corporate account but only after I had payed the account to a zero balance. That they would come and collect $854.00 in cash and then release the payment to the bank within 24-48 hours. That the Bank could also no longer be used to make payments.
This is a scam. I took the name and employee number from the person and there is no such person at DTE, nor do DTE Ever call asking for Cash Payment.
Please be careful, its the holiday season and there are always those who will try to take advantage of you. Please Call DTE and ask them if you have any questions.
