Duquesne Light warns customers of phone scam

Updated:

PITTSBURGH - Duquesne Light officials have been made aware of a potential scam targeting its customers and want to remind customers of the company’s policies.

A few customers have reported receiving calls stating that if payment isn’t made immediately, their service will be terminated the same day.  The callers are also directing customers to purchase “pre-paid” type credit cards to pay off the alleged amount.

Duquesne Light does not call customers on the day of a scheduled termination for non-payment, nor does it ask customers to purchase these pre-paid type payment cards.

If customers receive one of these calls, the company asks that they hang up and call Duquesne Light at 412-393-7100, as well as alerting their local police department.
