MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Businesses in Mobile continue to get hit by scammers claiming they are with Alabama Power. Trans Gulf Seafood is the latest to get the call.
"She sounded legit. She said, 'Well, your power will be cut off in an hour if you don't pay,'" said Thao Tran.
Tran said the caller asked her to put money on a prepaid card. The suspect then called back and got the number to the prepaid card.
Mobile Police said there have been a couple of business to fall for the scam.
"What's important to know is that Alabama Power doesn't contact you when you don't pay your bill, by telephone, asking for money," said Cpl. Chris Levy with Mobile Police.
If you've received one of those calls, you are urged to call Alabama Power or your local law enforcement right away.
