Nova Scotia Power warns of text message scam

September 22, 2017

HALIFAX, NS – Nova Scotia Power is warning customers about a text message scam that is circulating where a fraudulent message is delivered claiming that a refund is being issued by the company.

In this scam, the text message states that Nova Scotia Power has a refund for the customer with a specific dollar amount, and directs the recipient to click a link to access the funds.

Recipients are advised not to click on these links. These texts are not from Nova Scotia Power. Nova Scotia Power does not communicate with customers about bill payments or credits via text message.

Any time customers receive unexpected communications about bill payments or credits that appear to come from Nova Scotia Power, please call our Customer Care Centre at 1-800-428-6230 to confirm its legitimacy.
