SourceGas warns of billing scam

SourceGas customers should be aware of a variety of nationwide billing scams targeting utility customers.

The scams range from an individual trying to obtain a customer's personal information to attempts to obtain payments from customers. SourceGas is reminding customers to be prudent about the type of information they give out so they don't fall victim to identity theft.

Scammers have been known to try and use fake employee names and fake employee ID numbers when contacting customers. SourceGas said it will never call a customer and ask the customer to provide his full social security number, account number or password.

If a customer is unsure about any contact they receive from SourceGas, they are encouraged to call 1-800-563-0012 to verify the situation. Customers who think they have been a victim of a scam involving their account should call SourceGas at 1-800-563-0012 to verify the status of their account and also call their local law enforcement to report the incident.
