LADWP Impostors Seeking Bill Payment Over the Phone

By EGP News Report

(EGPNews) -The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) is warning consumers that impostors are posing as utility personnel making service-related telephone calls. According to a LADWP, the imposters are telling customers they have an overdue bill, and instruct them to go to a nearby pharmacy and to call a specific telephone number back with the customer’s financial information.

The utility company said there has been an increase in the number of LADWP customers reporting they were targeted by the scam. DWP says it never calls customers seeking personal banking information. They are urging customers to be vigilant in protecting their personal and financial information. To report suspicious activity to the Department: call LADWP Security Services at (213) 367-3373 or (213) 367-9111, or email, or visit and click “Security Issue” under “Contact Us.”
