FPL Warns Of Scam Targeting Utility Customers

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Florida Power and Light Company is warning customers of a scam going around through email.

The emails reportedly appear as monthly bills from FPL and other utilities such as Pacific Gas & Electric.

The company is sending emails to customers explaining that the scam emails are bogus and may contain malicious spam.

Customers are being advised to not open or click them and to not provide any personal information.

Delete it immediately.

The email states:
If you receive an FPL email bill that looks different from your normal bill or seems suspicious in any way, do not click any links. Look at the account number to verify that it is your actual account number. You can find your account number by looking at an old bill or by logging in to your account on FPL.com. If the account numbers match, then the email is a legitimate email from FPL. If they do not, delete the email immediately.

If you think you may have been a victim, report it online to the Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force at stopfraud.gov.

You can find images of these scam emails as well as additional tips on how to protect against scams by visiting FPL.com/protect.
