Several businesses and residents have been contacted by telephone by individuals claiming to be PEPCO representatives.  The caller advises the account holder that their account is past due, and that service is scheduled for disconnection.  A demand is made for immediate payment through MoneyGram, Reloadit, RushCards, or similar pre-paid cards. 

If you receive a similar call, please contact PEPCO customer service directly at 1-877-737-2662 to confirm your account balance.  PEPCO is aware of this scam and is working with law enforcement to resolve the matter.
