Utility scam targets Grimsby Power customers

The Niagara Regional Police Service is warning businesses of a scam that is targeting local businesses. Businesses are being contacted and advised that they have an overdue balance with Grimsby Power, and if payment is not made immediately by credit card or electronic transfer, the power will be disconnected.

This is a scam that has targeted businesses in many communities using the names of local utility companies.

Businesses are reminded to not rush into making any payments based on unsolicited phone calls.

Businesses should verify any outstanding or overdue balances by contacting their utility company directly using the contact information from a previous bill or the utility’s website and not rely on any information provided by the caller.

If you believe you have fallen victim to this scam, contact your credit card company and advise them about the transaction.
Information on crimes can also be submitted anonymously using Crime Stoppers of Niagara.

To leave an anonymous tip, please contact Crime Stoppers via:

Telephone – 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
