BEWARE OF PPL PHONE SCAM

Tuesday, February 7, 2016

SCAM ALERT!  It appears that scammers have been targeting businesses in the Township in the past few days.  Several businesses have reported getting phone calls from phone number 866-243-1386 in which the caller claims to represent PPL and threatens to turn off electric service to complete a repair or due to a delinquent account.  The caller named the local store that the business owner was to go to and instructed him to get a Moneypak card to keep the electric service from being turned off.

Do not fall victim to this scam!  If you have any questions regarding your PPL account, contact PPL directly for information, do not call the number given to you by the callers.  On PPL's website, they have posted phone number 1-800-342-5775 to report scams.
