Oshawa Power issues warning about scam

Oshawa Power says sophisticated scammers are portraying themselves as collection agents and are asking residents to meet and provide payment, under the threat of disconnection.

The scammers have copied the existing Oshawa Power recorded phone system and have set their call ID to display “Oshawa PUC”.

The utility says they have no association with this phone number: 1-(855) 797-1224

Oshawa Power will never:

  • Threaten immediate disconnection
  • Ask customers to meet us for payment
  • Contact you from a 1-(800) number
  • Accept cash payment

Oshawa Power only accepts payment via secure online banking, secure online credit card, and mailed cheque to their main office.

Oshawa Power’s only telephone number is (905) 723-4623.

They say if you have been contacted by someone demanding immediate payment, hang up and report the call.

If you are unsure whether you have been contacted by Oshawa Power, contact them to determine the authenticity of the phone call.
