Duke Energy customers should be on alert for a new bill-payment scam. It involves unsolicited phone calls from a fake Duke representative who claims the utility will disconnect electric service unless the customer makes an immediate payment, usually within an hour. The scammer tells the customer to buy a prepaid debit card and call back with the card’s receipt and PIN numbers.
