ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — Annapolis police are warning residents after they received a report this week from a local business about a BGE bill scam.

According to police, the Annapolis business got a phone call asking for payment for a utility bill. The caller asked for a payment via prepaid or Green Dot MoneyPak cards.

The caller ID showed that the call was coming from a BGE number, however it was a “spoof” call, according to police.

BGE will not ask for payment via prepaid or Green Dot MoneyPak cards.
