Scammers Using FPL To Rip Off Locals

An FPL scam is being carried out in Martin County, according to the Sheriff's Office there.  

Crooks are calling customers to tell them their payment hasn't been made and that power could be shut off immediately if they don't use their credit cards right that minute to pay their bills.  

Authorities want residents to know this is fraud and anyone receiving a call requesting money over the phone should hang up and call Florida Power and Light directly to check on the status of their accounts. 

No word on whether this scam has made its way into Palm Beach County.
