Bogus "Green Dot" Scam

A new scam involves BGE impostors asking customers to pay bills using a Visa Green Dot credit card.  BGE reports  customers are reporting that someone will call or visit them claiming to be a utility worker from BGE.

The callers claim to represent BGE, saying a customer's service is about to be terminated. The caller then says the customer can make an emergency payment by purchasing a Visa Green Dot credit card which is bogus.   Any such calls or visits should be reported promptly to 911.
