It’s the season of giving, but don’t let your guard down against unsolicited phone calls or bogus web sites. After the holidays, don’t be fooled by high pressure tactics from scammers claiming they will cut off your lights or help you pay your utility bill.
When in doubt, call MLGW’s easy-to-remember Customer Care number 544-MLGW (6549) to verify account status or to find out if MLGW is working in your area.
If you believe you have been targeted or victimized, immediately call your local police or sheriff’s department. You can also report scams using the Better Business Bureau's Scam Tracker at https://www.bbb.org/scamtracker/memphis/
