PG&E scammer targets the wrong person, calls the Mariposa Co. Sheriff's Office

The Mariposa County Sheriff's Office is now warning others about a PG&E scam.

The Mariposa County Sheriff's Office is now warning others about a PG&E scam.

In a Facebook post, the Sheriff's Office says it got a phone call from a scammer posing as a PG&E technician.

The crook claimed PG&E would be turning off the power at 4999 State Highway 140 and directed the Sheriff's Office to call an 800 number if it didn't want that to happen.

The Department seemed to know what was going on and told the scammer he had called the Sheriff's Office which ended up with the crook hanging up the phone.

Here is a link to PG&E's website that explains what to look out for when it comes to PG&E scams: https://www.pge.com/en_US/residential/customer-service/help/scams/scams.page?WT.mc_id=Vanity_scams
