AMP Warns Customers of Phone Scam

ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Alameda Municipal Power (AMP) is warning customers of a phone scam.

AMP has received reports that the scammer is impersonating an AMP employee and demanding immediate payment from customers. In addition, the scammer may tell customers to go to CVS to make the payment.

If you get a call demanding immediate payment on your account, be suspicious. AMP will never ask for credit card or debit card numbers and only provides automated courtesy calls to accounts that are already delinquent. If you have any doubts, don’t give out any information.

If you suspect you have become a victim of this scam, AMP recommends that you call the Alameda Police Department to file a report. Alameda Police can be reached at (510) 337-8340. Find more information at the Alameda Municipal Power website.
