SaskPower warns about e-mail scam

Careful what you click on.

SaskPower is warning about an e-mail scam designed to make people think they have missed their bill payment, and are about to be disconnected.

The links in the email take the victims to external websites looking to gather personal information as well as credit card numbers.

SaskPower would not send an email warning of disconnection. If you have any doubts, you should always call SaskPower and make sure your account is up to date.

The crown utility offered up these suggestions:

  • Always double check the sender’s email address – the display name may appear something legitimate, but the email address should be from
  • SaskPower does not threaten disconnection through an email for non-payment
  • SaskPower will never ask for payment via e-transfer, gift cards, or bitcoin
  • When in doubt, call SaskPower Customer Care at 1-888-757-6937 to confirm the communication is legitimate
