National Grid is warning people to be on the lookout for a potential scam.

The company says people claiming to be from National Grid may contact you by phone or email saying you owe money on your bill.

They then threaten to shut off your utility service if you don't buy a pre-paid debit card and provide them with the card number.

National Grid says they won't contact you by phone if you owe money, and they never demand payment through those debit cards.
