The scammer will try to get the potential victim to pay money over the phone.
Rick Burger, from Duke Energy, says don't take the bait.
"We never call people up within an hour and say, pay the bill. You will always if you are delinquent in a bill, you will at least be notified a month in advance...so I want people to understand that. But we never ask for a prepaid card or anything," Burger said.
