Washington State Attorney General warns consumers about email scam
The Washington State Attorney General's Office has issued a consumer alert regarding a new email phishing scam that is disguised as a utility bill. Washington consumers have reported receiving emails that appear to be statements from a legitimate utility company, notifying the recipient that their bill is “due upon receipt” or “past due.”
The email message provides a link to “view your most recent bill,” but clicking on the link will instead prompt the download of malware, which will infect your computer. Malware is software used to disrupt computer operation and gather sensitive information.
According to the Attorney General’s consumer experts, these fraudulent messages are just another variation of the common phishing scams — emails that look like they originate from a legitimate company, but are actually designed to obtain personal information or direct you to a website that downloads malware.
If you receive an unusual or questionable email, delete it. Contact our Customer Service Department at (509) 582-2175 with any questions.
