H.E.A.P. Scam Warning

H.E.A.P. Scam Warning
Posted February 13th, 2014 @ 6:09am

According to officials with the Energy Assistance Program, HEAP clients have reported a phone scam in which the caller requests bank account information and social security numbers.

Reports indicate that the calls are coming from a 1-800 number and in all cases the caller states "HEAP" was awarded extra money to assist with customers.

Officials warn that these calls are NOT from HEAP as their process credits a person's energy bill and does not access their bank accounts.
