NV Energy warns of consumer alert to customers

Another phone scam is making the rounds, and this time it’s from a caller claiming to be with NV Energy.

The perpetrator(s) are calling customers and making deceptive threats about their electric service, according to a press release form NV Energy. The phone number also appears as NV Energy.

NV Energy does not call customers to demand immediate payment for any reason. Customers at risk of having their power disconnected due to nonpayment receive a 10-day and 48-hour notice via U.S. mail.

If customers receive a call asking for an immediate payment, they should refuse and call local law enforcement or NV Energy if they have additional questions. Customers may also call NV Energy’s customer service department in southern Nevada at 702-402-5555.

In addition, NV Energy requires field employees and contractors to wear identification badges at all times. Employees are never authorized to receive payment in the field.
