Phone scam claiming to be representatives of National Grid threatening immediate power shut off.

We have received complaints from businesses and residents who have received calls from people claiming to be calling from National Grid. The caller is claiming that the customers power is going to be shut off immediately if payment is not made within one hour, they tell the customer to go to a CVS and pay for it with a green dark money pack card. Please do not make payments based on these calls, either call National Grid directly to seek direct information regarding your bill or contact the Police Department. We have traced the company making these calls to Utah and India. Please spread the word on this scam to your friends and family.
