In 2021, my friend was duped by scammers who called from an unknown number and pretended to be PG&E customer service.
He was harassed by a scammer by being told that his account was past due and that the power connection would be terminated if the bill was not paid. After my friend advised him on what to do, a con artist claimed he would receive a discount if he paid immediately online.
He was given all the information, including his social security number and credit card data. He was unaware of the fraud, and after losing some money from the account, he contacted and told me about it. I immediately called the company that issued his credit card and stopped the card.
After learning his lesson, my friend now calls 8007435000 whenever he encounters an issue.
