RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Dominion Energy wants to let you know about a new scam, where the crooks are pretending to be an HR recruiter for the company.
The scammer copied information from the Dominion Energy website to craft an email that may look legitimate at first glance, but a closer look shows several grammatical errors.
"But the biggest tip-off is the request for personal information—name, address, email, etc.," said Janell Hancock with Dominion Energy. "If a REAL recruiter had seen your resume online, (or if you had applied for a position) he or she would already know this information."
If you see this email, do not give your personal information to them!
Copy of the email:
Scammers have used the Dominion Energy name before, posing as workers or threatening to cut off power to customers if they don't pay up. Dominion says scammers attempted to collect around $780,000 by threatening actual customers...and they were successful in obtaining $120,000.
