New Scam – “Eversource” Calling

Those scammers sure are getting crafty!  Here’s the latest… listing agents are receiving phone calls that appear to be coming from Eversource advising that the owner of property listed has not been paying their bills and their service will be discontinued.  Unfortunately, some have provided their credit card info to take care of these invoices so service will remain active during the cold winter months.  Eversource has confirmed that this is the latest in a series of scams targeting REALTORS.  Be aware!  Please, first contact your seller to determine if they are indeed behind, and/or call Eversource directly through the phone number listed on their website.  NOT the phone number on your caller ID.  Geez, what will they think of next?
