Press Release
Submitted by: Sheriff J.D. 'Doug' Doughtie

It has come to our attention that a scam has been striking local restaurants and possibly citizens.

A person calls, saying they are with Dominion Power. They claim that the victim is in danger of having their power turned off due to lack of payment and then request immediate payment by credit card.

Dominion Power has noted this is not how they inform customers of delinquent accounts. Call your account representative to clarify if you have concerns.

Please call Dare Central if you are called and make a report if you feel you are being scammed. . Thank you.
