RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- A telephone scam artist was able to con a Ridgefield business employee out of about $700 by pretending to be from Connecticut Light & Power, according to the Ridgefield Press.
The caller warned the employee that the business' electricity would be cut off if a payment wasn't made via a Green Dot prepaid debit card. The employee purchased the cards and gave the account numbers to the caller, the Ridgefield Press reported.
Residents and businesses are instructed to call 203-438-6531 if they think they have been victimized by this scam, the Ridgefield Press said.
