Redding Electric Utility is warning customers of people soliciting money while pretending to be representatives of the utility company.
The company says that the scammers call from a number that is outside the city of Redding.
REU is investigating the situation and has contacted law enforcement, and encourage anyone with questions about the legitimacy of any correspondence to call (530) 339-7200.
The company says they will never call or email customers and then direct them to a non-REU payment facility, or require a specific method of payment for bills.
