Customer Contact Center has received numerous calls from electric
customers saying they have been contacted by phone by individuals
claiming to be from National Grid and advising the customers they have a
past due balance on their utility bill. These scammers warn that
service will be shut off immediately, unless the customer provides
sensitive bank account or cash card information and agrees to make an
immediate payment. National Grid does contact customers with past due balances by phone to offer payment options, but never demands direct payment over the telephone.
If customers wish, they can arrange for a payment by check, credit card
or debit card if they speak directly to a customer service
representative. Payment can also be made by credit card or debit card
without a representative’s assistance. Customers who have received
calls demanding immediate payment and are asked for bank account
information should contact National Grid immediately.
