Wasaga Distribution Warns You Of A Scam

Wasaga Beach's electric utility wants you to be aware of a scam involving a 1-800 number.

Wasaga Beach's electric utility wants you to be aware of a scam.

Wasaga Distribution has received calls, so far from its commercial customers such as restaurants, who report getting calls from a 1-800 number threatening to disconnect their hydro if they don't call the number back and make payment right away.

Customer Service Representative Chris Hahn says Wasaga Distribution does not have a 1-800 number and in no way would ever threaten to cut off service for immediate payment.

Hahn says she believes the scammers are asking for money transfers. You are advised not to comply.
