STAMFORD, Conn. - The Stamford Police Department is cautioning homeowners to be wary of a recent spate of utility scams involving Eversource.
An alert was issued by the department on Wednesday after investigators were contacted by several concerned citizens reporting the recent uptick in utility scams, particularly from a fraudster posing as an Eversource employee.
Police said that any homeowner that receives a call from 1-800-387-1880 from a person purporting to be from Eversource, it is a scam. Scammers often employ VOIP and spoof numbers and that calls can appear to be coming from many other numbers.
