(Ranieri) Guimaraes said someone called saying they were with Pacific, Gas and Electric and told him his bill was overdue. If he didn’t pay up in 30 minutes, it was lights out.
In a panic, he paid $1,000 with a cash card. One very expensive mistake.
“I’d like to see PG&E take full responsibility for this,” he said.
PG&E said this type of scam happens all the time, usually with restaurant owners in their peak business hours using a cash card.
