Georgetown Municipal Light Department

Scam Calls to Lower Electric Bill

We've gotten several calls from residents who received scam calls offering to lower their electric bills by 25%. The scammers are claiming to be from National Grid, and they're asking residents to send them copies of their electric bills. If you get a similar call, please just hang up--do NOT provide any personal information, and do not send them any financial or private information.

As always, if you're ever unsure about the legitimacy of something, please do not hesitate to call the police, 978-352-5700.
