Barnwell NEWS


WARNING of NEW SCAM: There is a new scam going on using Dominion Energy.  Scammers have gotten access to customers' info to include account numbers.  The scammers are calling customers telling them they are past due and threaten to cut off their power if they don’t pay.  Then the scammers con the customer into paying with a gift card or green dot card that is virtually untraceable.  PLEASE verify any calls like this by calling Dominion Energy and verifying it with them. Do not pay any bills with a Green Dot card or any Debit type card that you give your card number and security code out.
