Phone scam targets UGI customers

UGI Utilities customers have been receiving phone calls from a scam caller instructing them to send money to avoid termination of their natural gas or electric services, according to a UGI news release.

The utility company warned in the release that the caller told customers that they owed money for their energy bills and would have their services shut off if they did not pay.

According to UGI, the caller was not connected with the company and UGI Utilities does not contact customers late on their bills in that way.
