NB Power warns customers of phone scam

NB Power is advising customers to be on alert for fraudulent phone calls from people claiming to be employees of the New Brunswick utility.
Officials say the callers are requesting access to the homes of customers under the guise of conducting an inspection of their water heater.
In fact, NB Power will only go to a home to service a water heater at the request of the customer.
Anyone who gets such a call is encouraged to report it to police and not to give out any financial information over the phone.
