BBB warns of scammers targeting Entergy customers

BRANDON — The Better Business Bureau (BBB) serving Mississippi is warning of a utility scam targeting Entergy customers in the state of Louisiana.

John O’Hara, CEO of BBB in Mississippi, says these types of scams “are like the weather, they start out in one area and spread out.” These scams will also move from utility company to utility

company throughout any given area, he added.

The scammers call consumers to inform them that their utility bill is past due and their

service is about to be disconnected. They offer several different ways for you to pay

electronically, such as using a Green Dot MoneyPak card.
