In a Facebook post, the DA says phone imposters have tried taking advantage of consumers by claiming to be with Southern California Edison (SCE) and fraudulently threatening to disconnect electrical service unless immediate payment is made. Often, the caller tells the unsuspecting customer to use a prepaid debit card to make a payment over the phone.
This is a scam.
