Ohioans Targeted by Utility Bill Email Scam
Friday, January 24, 2014 - 14:19 Updated 26 weeks ago Special to HNN Provided by Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine
In a typical variation of the scam, a consumer receives an email message claiming to be from PG&E, a west coast utility company, or another out-of-state utility company. The message often claims the consumer owes $344 or $559 and it may contain a link to view the consumer’s account or most recent statement. Consumers should not click on these links.

PG&E also issued a warning: http://www.pgecurrents.com/2014/01/08/pge-warns-of-scam-emails-calls/
