Joey Vallarian, Duquesne Light spokesman, said 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” credit cards to pay off the alleged amount, he said.
"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," Vallarian said in a statement.
If customers receive one of these calls, the company asks that they hang up, call Duquesne Light at 412-393-7100, and alert the police.
