DAYTON — Dayton Power & Light Co. reports it has received calls from several business customers who have been contacted and told they may be able to receive a refund on their bills after a meter audit.
While the scammers say they are working on behalf of DP&L, this is not the case.
The scam company attempted to get bills from business utility customers on the east coast in August and is now calling DP&L business customers this month.
With all the information on the utility bill the scammers could “slam” customers and switch them to another electricity provider without permission.
Those who have been contacted as part of this scam should alert local Better Business Bureaus.
Those who provided the scammers with copies of their bill, should send an e-mail via www.dpandl.com/email or call the DP&L Business Solutions Center at (800) 253-5801.
