Scam Alert for Oakville and Burlington Residents
Oakville Hydro and Burlington Hydro have issued separate warnings to residents about circulating scams.
Oakville Hydro say they’ve received reports about door-to-door visits from individuals misrepresenting themselves as Oakville Hydro staff.
SCAM ALERT: Multiple scams are circulating, including telephone disconnection scams and people misrepresenting themselves as our staff conducting door-to-door visits. This is NOT Oakville Hydro. Unsure? Call us directly at 905-825-9400 and speak to Customer Service. Please RT.— OakvilleHydro (@Oakvillehydro) September 27, 2019
Some Burlington Hydro customers, meanwhile, have reported that they’re receiving calls from individuals pretending to be Burlington Hydro employees who then threaten to cut-off the customers hydro unless a payment is made over the phone.
Both Halton hydro companies are reminding residents to remain vigilant and never disclose their credit card information over-the-phone or at their door.
