Energy bill scams making comeback

Scammers never stop, no matter what time of year it is. Entergy Louisiana reminds customers to be wary, as scammers are targeting unsuspecting customers. The scheme typically occurs when the con artist calls and tells the customer their electric bill payment is past due, and that service will be disconnected if payment isn’t made. The scammer then directs the customer to transfer funds electronically, sometimes through “MoneyPak,” “Green Dot” or other third party card or transfer system.
