Be careful about scammers claiming to be from Xcel Energy or other businesses claiming you have not paid your bill. A recent example was a business receiving a call from someone claiming to be from Xcel Energy stating they owe money and will shut down their power if they do not pay their bills. The scammers are telling homeowners and business owners to send Money cards. You should also be aware that these scammers were successful in stealing Xcel Energy’s phone / voice promp system to make them sound more authentic. If you get a call from someone claiming to be from Xcel Energy or another business, do not send them any money. Call your local police department.
