Duquesne Light warned Friday that a scam is targeting some of its customers.

The utility said customers have received phone calls from people claiming to Duquesne Light representatives. The callers demand payment over the phone by credit card or prepaid debit card, and assert that service will be terminated immediately for failure to do so.

Duquesne Light said it never demands payment over the phone. It asks customers to get as much information from the caller as possible and call local police and then customer service at 1-888-393-7100.
