    I nearly got caught by a scam call. Caller ID showed 206-386-4200. It started as an automated call letting me know the electricity was going to be shut off in 30 minutes for non-payment of my residential account. The first person I spoke with referred me to his supervisor, Marco Lopez, who told me I needed to go immediately to a Safeway, QFC or Bartells to pay. I told him I was not familiar with City payment centers being at those places (while I confirmed via the City’s employee directory that he is NOT a City employee). He told me he would stay on the phone with me while I drove to one of those places and to let him know once I got to the parking lot so he could give me further directions (red flag). When I told him I’d have to arrange for a ride I asked for his phone number (1-800-523-3032 ext 2316) and told him I’d call once I arrived at Bartells. A quick call to Seattle City Light 206-684-3000 let me know that no utilities are being shut off at this time. Since I did not fall for the scam, SPD did not take a report because a crime had not been committed. Please warn others.

      Next time, just hang up and report the incident to the Attorney General’s office via their website. Never engage in dialogue with criminal phone scam artists.
