What You Should Know

Consumers receive a call from their state's "Public Utilities Commission" with a solar energy sales pitch. Consumers are told there is a deadline with the government, and they must act right away to receive special pricing on solar energy panels. The scammers will ask for a "deposit or service fee" or to "validate" your personal and financial information with the hopes of identity theft and fraud.

What you should do

Public Service Commissions and Utility companies do not make telemarketing calls to the public, and they certainly don't authorize anyone to do so on their behalf. Anyone who claims otherwise is simply lying. Avoid being a victim and remember to never share personal or financial information. Never wire money or send a pre-paid debit card. Don't pay for a "prize" that requires insurance, taxes or shipping charges to collect, it's not a prize; it's a scam. Don't trust provided names or numbers. Scammers will use official-sounding names and even "spoof" (i.e. fraudulently list on caller I.D.) legitimate telephone numbers to sell their claims.

Our best advice

A healthy dose of skepticism (and letting calls go to voicemail) will go a long way in avoiding any scam. If you do get such a call, hang up and report the scam to the Federal Trade Commission. If you get a call from a government imposter, file a complaint at ftc.gov/complaint. Need to get the specifics on the number?
