JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Scammers are targeting utility company customers across Florida using sophisticated tactics to pocket quick cash, Florida Power & Light warned Wednesday.

According to FPL, scammers are impersonating utility workers, which is creating a threat to families and businesses. 

FPL shared the following three tips to help customers protect themselves:

  • If you get a suspicious call, hang up. Never share personal information.
  • FPL will never demand immediate payment with only a prepaid card or wire transfer to avoid service disconnection.
  • Contact law enforcement if you get a suspicious call or think you're a victim.
