Scammers Targeting Small Businesses

Be aware of scam artists calling small businesses, pretending to be from Roseville Electric. Dee Dee Gunther Public Information Officer with the Roseville Police Department says the callers will threaten to shut off power unless you pay them.

Call Roseville’s utility billing representatives at (916)774-5300 to report any suspicious call. If someone contacts you in person claiming to be from a utility department, you hadn’t requested service and they seem suspicious, don’t let them in–call police.
