Hispanic Xcel Customers In Amarillo Targeted In Scam
I've used the word 'scam' with the company 'Xcel' quite often. My power bill feels like I'm being taken advantage of. But Hispanic customers of Xcel are being targeted in a scam and it isn't a joke.
Someone is calling Spanish speaking customers of Xcel and falsely claiming their power is about to be disconnected.
To avoid a service interruption the customer is asked to buy a Green Dot pre-pay Visa card and to call back in with the card's information.
If you or someone you know gets a call of this nature you are asked to contact Xcel at 1-800-894-4999 to confirm the call came from them.
