The power giant says they will not call you to get your personal information and they don't take the Money Pak card.
Florida Power & Light is out with a warning.
Folks are reporting suspicious phone calls from someone claiming to be an FPL employee. The scam artist says the customer's account is past due and they must pay with a prepaid Money Pak card to avoid being disconnected.
FPL says, despite the fact that some calls appear on the Caller I.D. as an FPL number in Miami, the calls are actually coming from an internet phone service outside the U.S.
These callers do not work for Florida Power & Light, and FPL does not accept the Money Pak card as payment. They also do not ask for personal information unless the customer intitiates the contact.
Law enforcement and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services have been made aware of the scam.
Right now, it has been mainly in the Miami-Dade area, and mainly Hispanic FPL customers have been targetted, but officials are concerned this could spread.
