Advisory

F.P. & L. PHONE SCAM

Residents are getting calls from individuals claiming to work for Florida Power and Light (FPL). They are being told their bill is overdue and their electricity is going to be cut off if they do not send in an immediate payment. Although there are some variations, the majority of the time the resident is told to go to CVS Pharmacy, Western Union, or some other business to get a money order or to wire money to an account. THIS IS A SCAM !! Residents are urged to NEVER send money in that fashion and if they have a question about the electric bill they should contact FL&L themselves directly to verify their account status.
