Message from Captain Ron Milardo

The Portland Police Department is warning residents to be on the lookout for new
Eversource scams. Scammers continue fine-tuning their techniques, including using
phony caller IDs that display “Eversource” and scripts that sound like a legitimate
company representative threatening to disconnect their electric or gas service because of
an unpaid bill. Never provide personal financial or account information to any
unsolicited person on the phone or on line. Customers are also encouraged to contact
Eversource at 1-800-285-2000 if they receive a call, text, email or if someone shows up
at your door to verify it’s Eversource. For more information on how to protect personal
information and avoid becoming a victim of utility scams visit Eversource.com.
