Santa Ana Police Department
Imposters have been calling business owners telling them they are past due on the electricity bill and must pay immediately using a prepaid cash card.
Here are a few tips on how to avoid being scammed by these imposters:
- Never give out personal information to anyone over the phone.
- Any call that demands immediate payment is suspicious.
- Customers suspecting a fraudulent call should ask for the caller’s name, department, and business phone number. If the caller refuses, terminate the call.
- Verify your account balance by calling Edison directly.
Report any suspicious activity by calling the Santa Ana Police Department at (714) 834-4211 or 911 for emergencies.
