Duke Energy Scam Alert
CINCINNATI, Ohio (WKRC) -- Two Green Township businesses are targets of a scam that may effect you.
A caller claiming to be from Duke Energy contacted Wild Mikes on Harrison and Thai Nam Tip on North Bend saying the owners were late on their payments.
The caller asked for immediate payment over the phone, in one case using a prepaid debit card.
Both restaurant owners recognized the scam. Duke Energy says it will never ask customers to buy a pre-paid debit card to avoid having their service cut off.
Duke will notify a customer over the course of several weeks before turning off service.
