SCAM ALERT: An FPB customer was recently the victim of a scam and we want to make everyone aware of this incident.

The customer received a call from someone claiming to be an FPB employee and stating someone would be coming to their home to replace their electric meter. The caller stated their electric meter was using more electricity than it was supposed to and needed to be replaced. The customer was instructed to buy a Green Dot MoneyPak with $500 loaded onto it for the repair.

FPB never does business this way. Should you ever receive a call from someone claiming to be an FPB employee, and you have any doubt as to their validity, please hang up and call our office to confirm. Individuals coming to your home claiming to be FPB employees should have proper identification. Anyone who cannot identify them-self to your satisfaction should be turned away. You should also report any such calls or visits to local law enforcement.
