AZ Utilities Warn Customers About Holiday Scams
With the holidays fast approaching, Arizona utilities are reminding their customers in Yavapai County and the rest of the state that professional scammers often use the hectic holiday season to take advantage of unsuspecting victims.
According to local scam awareness experts, December and January typically have the greatest amount of scam activity.
That’s why Arizona utilities support International Fraud Awareness Week and recognize the seventh annual Utility Scam Awareness Day, which takes place Wednesday. It is an advocacy and awareness campaign focused on educating customers and exposing the tactics used by scammers. Fraud awareness week, which runs November 13-19, is a global effort to minimize the impact of fraud.
High-pressure tactics are never used to collect payments.
