My married name is a Spanish surname but I don’t speak much Spanish. I asked the lady in Spanish if she speaks English & she hung up on me. Looking at other comments, I’m not sure why they’d be calling my phone number which is a Texas number & I live in Texas.
I spoke with Jorge Aquilar who told me my power would be shut off today for non payment. He spoke with me in spanish. I am not behind on payments so I didn't accept the phone number he was giving me. I called eversource and they confirmed it was a scam.
Call showed up on caller ID as 'UNKNOWN NAME' so I didn't pick up but it was a legitimate informational call from We Energies (a Wisconsin power utility) about a 2-hour power outage this AM. They probably call ALL customers in a given service area even if they weren't affected. HOWEVER, under other circumstances this number could be SPOOFED so, if it is not about an outage and you have doubts about any other message, call We Energies to verify! ( If you DON'T live in the We Energies service area, it probably IS a SCAMMER!! )
They provided another phone # where they tell you to send a money order or they will cut the electricity, the # they give 18776008164, they call me 3 times, they give me ext. # 210 and name some Manuel Ortega or Susan Gonzalez, I call to the the # show on my Id 18006624797 and is a company from Wisconsin, and toll them what I know, they said they will report it
