Scam callers claiming to represent Xcel Energy

People being threatened with having power shut off
Roswell residents have been calling the Roswell Police Department to report receiving phone calls recently from people claiming to be with local power provider Xcel Energy.
The caller tells the resident he or she is in arrears on their account and must provide credit card information so the bill can be paid immediately. The scammer claims the company has someone on the way to turn off the electrical service to the residence or business.
The caller provides a phone number for the targeted victim to use in calling back with the requested information. When that number is called, a recorded greeting claims the person has reached Xcel.
Xcel Energy says it never contacts its customers in this manner.
No matter who claims to be calling, never give financial or other personal identification information on the phone unless you initiated the call and are certain who you are talking to.
