Columbus, Neb. - It is happening again in Norfolk. A phone scam in which
business owners and residents are falsely threatened their electricity
will be shut off if they do not pay their electric bill immediately with a pre-paid, "Greendot" card.
Individuals, posing as representatives of the local power company - in
this case, the Nebraska Public Power District - tell the customer they are overdue on their electric bill and must pay up within 20 minutes or be disconnected. They are then instructed to purchase pre-paid cards in order to make immediate payment.
