Customers in West Virginia should be aware of a new phone scam, according to the Public Service Commission

The scam has already been used in other parts of the county and comes from a fake Suddenlink representative. In most instances, the fake representative explains Suddenlink is upgrading customers’ equipment in order to improve the quality of service. The caller promises a $40 credit and free service for the months of November and December. The caller then informs the customer they must pay $200 for the new equipment and requests the customer’s banking information. The PSC warns not to give any of this information.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The Public Service Commission is warning customers about reports of a new phone call scam in West Virginia.

“If a caller claims to be from Suddenlink, or any utility, and makes an offer that sounds too good to be true, hang up on them and call the company at the customer service number that appears on your bill,” said PSC Chairman Charlotte Lane. “These scammers are criminals and customers should never interact with them. Do not share your banking or credit card information with anyone you cannot confirm is a legitimate utility representative. And never share your personal information, including your Social Security number. If you receive a call such as this, call the police and report it immediately.”
