Caller Name: Supposedly from Com Ed (electric utility in Chicago area)

I get these calls nearly every day (M-F), sometimes 3 times per day. They want your account number. I ask why; don't they already have it? Oh, they want to "verify" the number. Sometimes they know your name, sometimes not. I ask why they don't just apply the refund; they say they need to "verify" info first. Yeah, right. I ask what would happen if I were never home, or I were deaf; how would they reach me? Callers ALWAYS have Indian accents, but give "American" names like "Sam Brown." I say, "Oh, it doesn't say 'Sam Brown' on caller ID; it says 'Bane Chowd' " which often throws them, as this means "sister f***er" in Hindi. Once a woman called herself "Kim Lewis." I said, "There are people in India named Kim Lewis?" She hung up immediately. Anyway, I try to keep them on the line as long as possible, so they can't make as many calls and scam as many people. Sometimes I say that I can't provide my bill because I get billed online and my internet is down, or that I've thrown away my (paper) bill. No, you can't do anything to prevent these calls, as they are from overseas and thus don't care about "do not call" laws in the U.S. Either hang up on them or try to keep them on the line to prevent them from calling more people.

crush the illigit utility scammers wuth indian accents!!!!!!

I've been getting "apology" calls from an unknown entity offering me an apology for over charging me on ALL of my utility bills!! REALLY??!! Yeah, really. I recently had fun with one dude who's weak attempt at speaking English was laughable. The interesting thing is that so far EVERY CALLER has had a thick Indian/Hindi accent. I told the guy that I was an exec. for a major power supplier and that we were investigating fraud cases. The call went dead. Don't fall for thier crap!!

Caller Name: Milpitas CA caller ID; caller claimed to be from Bolt Energy

Caller had it seemed an Indian accent. Claimed I was overcharged by a third party gas supplier. I asked him what my gas supplier was called. Couldn't answer. Asked him who he represented. He said Bolt Energy. (Checked - this is a legitimate gas supplier.) Asked him what I was overcharged. He said $50. Asked him how he knew the amount. He disconnected.

I've gotten these calls 3 times now. They have my name and address but cannot tell me my account number and they have my provider wrong. It's fun wasting their time and getting them irritated to the point they hang up! LOL

Robo call, says I was overcharged by my utility company. Press 1 to get my rebate. I block the number each time and they continue to call from other numbers

December 13, 2019

Caller Name: Indian guy

In their very thick Indian accent, they said they work for ComEd. I asked who my 3rd party supplier was that overcharged me. They said Bolt Energy. I told them they are a fraud, and I was going to report them.

Computer Security Scam

How can I stop these calls? I keep getting calls from a fake utility company saying they have overcharged me. Hit number one for a refund. I ask to get off the list and they hang up?

November 13, 2019

They want your account info so they can spam you. Next bill will be from them at a much higher rate than you are paying now

Caller Name: Someone claiming to offer a rebate

The call started as a robocall saying that it was an apology call, saying we were overcharged on our gas and electric bill and that we were getting a 30% rebate. The only option was to hit '1' to speak with someone, and this person came on with a very thick foreign accent. I asked him what the name of my electric company was and he said "Direct Energy", which right away told me it was a scam. I have asked them repeatedly to take me off their calling list, and I even threatened to report them the next time they called me, and the guy said to me 'you can go ahead and report me'. It wasn't from this 224 number though, it had another area code, but it was obvious that they were not even in this country

Caller Name: allegedly Com Ed

Another complained about getting called 3 times a week - they're lucky, I get called up to 8 times per day! Keep changing the number so cannot block.

Received scam call from Com Ed hung before I gave any info!!!


September 4, 2019

I'm getting calls from these idiots EVERY DAY .... I am on the DNC list but clearly it makes NO DIFFERENCE. I too occasionally press "9" to speak with someone to say "STOP CALLING" and was told "I am just an agent and can't stop these calls" or a quick hangup. I have to assume the FCC knows about these fraudsters!!

Caller Name: "This is an Apology call from ComEd"

I'm getting three calls a week from these bozos. I block one number and they call from another. In the last two calls I have going through their system to talk to a real person and demand to be removed from their list. They hung up. They've called back since. What can I do now?

Overpaid on my electric bill.

Utilities offered a refund if I press “1”. Started with, “this is an apology call...” Utilities don’t apologize, they just credit you.
