Total scam. Claimed to be FPL and that my electric would be cut off in 1/2 hour. Wanted me to go to a gas station and get a money order card for 487.50. Beware.
I just got a call from the same thing but here's the funniest thing. Its a cell phone. when I text back it went through and if its a non apple it shows in a different color. so they must be doing well cause their on a apple. lol idiots !!!!
TOTAL SCAM - I have called FP&L, Florida Department of Consumer Services, and the FTC. Florida Power and Light said they will NEVER call with that type of warning. They send disconnect notices only through the mail.
Just received a call from this number that my FPL account would be disconnected today. Someone came on, confirmed my name and call disconnected. Our FPL account is not in my name. This is creepy
Appears to be a scam. "Florida Power & Light" my ass. On top of that, they called at 7:24 AM, Pacific time.

It IS FPL, The number they say to call are the scammers spoofed their number, say to call fellow jerks to get personal info.
Received a call from 800 226-3545, recorded message said
that my electricity would be cut soon for 30 min as a test for lack of payment, they directed me to call a different number. When I called the above number it indeed seem to be FPL. Conclusion: crooks are spoofing the FPL number, but leaving a different number to call to scam you. There is technology that phone companies could use so that the number you call from Is the number appearing in the caller ID, anti-spoofing technology, why aren’t they using it? Will they charge us an extra service if they use it?
Got this call claiming FPL will be cutting our in 30 min due to nonpayment. Here's the kicker: we are a business with utilities included in the rent for our office space. Definitely a scam, please be wary.
I just received a call saying it was FPL letting me know that my account was past due.Bill was paid in full since 10/01/2019 definitely scam.
Received call from 1-800-226-3545. They were saying they were from FPL but they then asked me for my full social security number. They wanted to sell me a system that would block robo calls and scams. I call the real FPL and they acknowledged that someone was using their phone number for scam purposes. I informed do not call and blocked them. FPL will be filing a police report.
Just got this call myself, laughed in their faces after I played along. Total scam, those less savy need to be careful.
I deal with FPL daily. That's their number.
‼️‼️FPL PHONE☎️ CALL SCAM‼️‼️
I just got a phone call claiming to be FPL. They siad my power would be turned off in 60 mins and gave me a phone number to call pay my past due bill and keep my power on. Make sure you DO NOT call this FAKE number from a message or voicemail. If you may have an 'issue" make sure to call the REAL FPL number 800-468-8242
Scam caller. My phone bill is deducted automatically from my bank account. A man with a spanish tone called and said my power would be cut today if I don'y pay
Total scam. Our FPL bill drafts automatically on the 25th of the month but they called on 9/19 and told us power would be cut today for nonpayment. Lady had a really thick accent and the line had a ton of static. She didn't know my name or account number. The # they used to call me (which I have now blocked) was 800-226-3545
