'PG&E' scam in Livingston County

Geneseo, N.Y. - The Livingston County Sheriff's Department issued a scam alert Monday afternoon.

According to Livingston County Sheriff Thomas Dougherty, a recent e-mail scam has been circling the web. The email claims that the receiver has an outstanding Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) balance and must pay it. Note the similarity in name to local gas company RG&E. 

There is a legitimate PG&E on the West Coast. The company is aware of the complaints.

PG&E issued the following steps to follow if you receive one of the emails:

  • Do not respond to request
  • Do not click on any links in the email
  • Do not open any attachments
  • Do not provide any personal information
  • Report these contacts to CorporateSecurity@pge.com
