Phishing scam reported in Oxford

Oxford StockDaily Journal

OXFORD – A phishing scam focused on electric customers has been reported in Oxford.

The scammers seem legit as the caller ID shows the Oxford Electric Department number. Oxford Electric does not call and request payment over the phone and certainly not on the weekend.

Customers are advised:

• Ignore suspicious requests, either via phone call or email for personal information such as bank account numbers, user names and passwords, credit card numbers or Social Security numbers.

• Delete all suspicious emails that require immediate action to verify or provide personal information.
