From the Garrett County Government: PHONE SCAM: The Garrett County Sheriff’s Department is warning local residents of a phone scam in which the caller claims to work for Potomac Edison. The caller then threatens to shut off the electricity to the person’s residence unless they purchase a money card and use it to pay the caller. The sheriff’s Department wants people to know the calls are not being made by Potomac Edison, and instead are part of a scam. Extreme caution should be used whenever callers request any funds, bank account information, credit card information or personal data, and none of it should be provided to callers, deputies warn.
