A Brewster resident received a call February 4 from a person who stated he was calling from “Eversource,” and that the Brewster resident was eligible for a 20% discount on their next bill. The caller then asked for the Brewster resident’s Eversource account number and zipcode. The Brewster resident became suspicious, and when she asked the caller a question, the caller hung up.
The Brewster resident called Eversource to determine if the call was a scam and learned that it was. Eversource is working with the state Attorney General’s office as many of these calls are being made.
Before providing any information to a caller offering a “benefit” of this type, confirm the caller is legitimate.
