Martin County Sheriff warns of FPL Scam

Martin County, Fl- The Martin County Sheriff’s Office is warning of a scam occurring in the area. Scammers are contacting citizens claiming they are from FPL and will be shutting off their power due to unpaid bills unless they make immediate payment using green dot cards.

The Sheriff’s Office offered the following suggestions to keep you and your family from becoming a victim. First, recognize that FPL, and any reputable company, will never ask for payment via green dot or any other type of gift cards. If someone comes to your door representing a company, please ask to see their ID. Then call the company they are representing and request their employment status. Before you give anyone your personal information or access to your credit card, make sure they are from the company they are representing.
