Pacific Gas and Electric Co. (PG&E) is alerting customers to be aware of a scam that has impacted other utility customers across the country. The scam, which has been reportedly taking place in person, through social media, posted fliers and text messages, claims that President Barack Obama is providing a credit or directly paying utility bills. In some cases, customers have been asked for Social Security numbers to apply payments to customers’ utility bills, presenting an identity-theft risk.

PG&E wants to remind customers that its representatives would not ask for personal or banking information over the phone.
