Beware, because those scammers sure are out there trying to rip us off this week!

Today, scammers are calling and claiming to be Emera Maine representatives.  They'll say that you owe $, and if you don't pay up immediately, then they'll turn off the juice.

Screw them!  Folks from Emera Maine would never call and do this. Don't believe us?  Then just ask them!  So, don't give anyone your personal information via the phone, and certainly don't send these schmucks any money.

The other scam involves shady types using your phone # to call other people, so that they can rip them off.  This is happening a lot in our area, as is evident by reading through the comments about this post on the EPD Facebook page.  Some commentators even reported receiving calls from their own personal phone #.
