Stop scammers by knowing their game
By phone, online and in-person, scammers are getting creative. It’s up to all of us to be vigilant to keep our personal and financial information safe.
Atlanta Gas Light and the entire Southern Company Gas family of companies are joining 130 U.S. and Canadian energy companies to expose the red flags of a scam and how customers can protect themselves.
In recent years, scammers have expanded their schemes into digital spaces, such as email and social media. Atlanta Gas Light strongly encourages customers to be skeptical if anyone:
Atlanta Gas Light holds itself accountable to customers and communities it serves, which is why it reminds Georgia marketer customers that it will never contact them regarding their natural gas bill. While Atlanta Gas Light maintains the pipeline infrastructure, responds to emergencies and reads meters every month, it does not bill customers directly. Only natural gas certified marketers in Georgia sell natural gas to customers and bill these customers for natural gas usage.
Customers who suspect or experience fraud should contact local authorities, and then call the customer care center phone number listed on their billing statement. And, customers who want to confirm that an Atlanta Gas Light representative is scheduled to perform work at their premise should contact our customer care center at 800-427-5463.
In addition, whenever a field service representative or one of our contractors visits a customer’s home or business, they will provide Atlanta Gas Light identification. And, as an additional safety measure to protect our customers, anyone who signs up to receive our Keep Me Informed appointment status text messages can access a photo of the technician assigned to perform work at their property.
