Don’t Fall Victim to Utility Payment Scams!

Unfortunately, scammers can be sophisticated making it easy to fall victim to their tricks.

Know the signs and always be on the lookout for these common traits:

Scammers might pretend to be from DP&L. Your phone caller ID might even say “DP&L.”

Scammers might threaten to turn off power to your home or business within an hour.

Scammers might demand payment immediately often by a pre-paid debit card.

Remember this is a crime!
  1. DO NOT pay over the phone – hang up.
  2. Call your local police station to report.
  3. Call DP&L at the telephone number on your bill to verify.

Please be aware that this is an industry wide problem that has affected many utilities across the country. DP&L is working with authorities to stop this unauthorized activity.
