Last week I received a call ... that purportedly was from a rep from "Washington Gas," telling me they were preparing to offer me a "discount" on my gas bill for being such a good customer.
Our bill, by the way, was only $20 last month, hardly meriting a discount.
He had my name right, and my address correct, but when he asked me to "confirm my account number" at Washington Gas, I told him to 'stuff it.'
Sounds in the background like those associated with a 'Boiler Room' come-on. Indian or Pakistani-influenced in the English language spiel.
I reported it to Washington Gas the day of the call.
This is different (new?) from previous scams reported by Washington Gas
