Since January 2014, more than 16,000 SCE customers have received
utility phone scam calls from impostors claiming to be from SCE and
threatening to disconnect their service unless immediate payment is
made for bogus late bills. Of those, at least 700 customers have
paid scam artists at a loss of nearly half a million dollars.
