UGI warns customers of email scam

Posted: Updated:
READING, Pa. (WHTM) -

UGI says a number of its customers have received emails, purportedly from either PG&E Energy or Atmos Energy Corporation, stating that they owe money for their energy bills.

The utility in a news release urged anyone who receives the email to delete it immediately and to not click on any links.

UGI said the emails are a widespread scam, and both PG&E and Atmos have stated these communications are not from their companies.

The emails have been sent to both PG&E and Atmos customers and non-customers. The fraudulent billing message references a fake account number and contains links to spam, UGI said.

The emails provide links to view a bill, but those who click on the link are taken to a compromised website that harbors malware, the news release stated.
