Roseville Scam Targets Local Businesses


SHARE with Friend




Roseville, CA-  Roseville Police wish to alert businesses of a local scam.  Be aware of scam artists calling small businesses, pretending to be from Roseville Electric.

They say that they're on their way to shut off the power due to nonpayment, but will accept immediate payment in the form of cash gift cards. Our utility department employees don't call customers to solicit payments (the city does place routine"robo-calls" to remind customers about late payments).

Also, no legitimate utility company or business will demand payment in the form of money wire transactions or cash gift cards. If you get a call or visit from a live person claiming to be with our utility departments demanding immediate payment, don't fall for it--it's a scam.

Hang up and call Roseville's utility billing representatives at (916)774-5300 to report the suspicious call.

If someone contacts you in person claiming to be from a utility department, you hadn't requested service and they seem suspicious, don't let them in--call police.
