TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) - Talquin Electric is warning its customers about a phone scam.

The company says several customers have experienced calls where the caller pretends to be from Talquin Electric, saying that Talquin and the City of Tallahassee's bills are billed together. The caller then threatens to cut off their utilities and demands payment over the phone.

The company's the callers are spoofing Talquin’s phone number so that the Member’s caller ID shows shows the company's number. 

Talquin says they will not call customers and demand immediate payment on a utility bill.
