Scam Alert

Normally I wouldn’t post something like this but it is the holidays and I don’t want anyone to fall for it. This is for Clark County in Washington; please share.


Scam alert! Scammers are calling customers and threatening to disconnect power if the customer doesn’t pay. These scam calls are getting more and more sophisticated and convincing. Scammers are specifically targeting small businesses like bakeries, pubs and retailers and are telling people to pay their bill with a prepaid card, which is a sure sign of a scam. The calls even appear to be from Clark Public Utilities on caller I.D.. Please be on high alert and don’t fall for it!

If you receive a call threatening immediate disconnection if a payment isn’t made, hang up and call us back at 360-992-3000. We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and will happily check the status of your account for you.

Please be safe and help us spread the word to family and neighbors, especially the elderly and non-english speakers.

ISEGORIA

If you’re like me, you’re SOOOOO sick of news channels. Yes, all the big players are biased and have their own agenda – and this agenda is primarily to sow discord and get people angry, so we keep watching their news. At the same time, Facebook and YouTube are purging whatever news sources they don’t like (this happens on the right and left). There is an interesting thing that I am keeping an eye on called  ISEGORIA  (horrible name but great concept). They are going to create a block-chain based news network for independent news that will provide alternative sources of news. I recommend that you keep an eye on it too.
