City Light Cautions Customers to Beware of Scams

SEATTLE-Seattle City Light has become aware of recent attempts by people falsely posing as City Light employees or agents to get money from utility customers.

In one case, someone claiming to be from City Light called a customer and asked for credit card information to pay the electric bill. In another, a caller said that a one-time payment of $159 could save the customer 50 percent on her bill.

City Light would like to remind customers of the following:
  • Seattle City Light never asks customers over the telephone for credit card information to pay their bills.
  • Seattle City Light employees carry identification with the City Light logo and will always display it when asked.
If you are in doubt about the identity of a person claiming to represent Seattle City Light, call the utility at (206) 684-3000.
