A number of UGI customers have received e-mails, purportedly from either PG&E Energy or Atmos Energy Corporation, stating that they owe money for their energy bills.
UGI urges anyone who receives this email to delete it immediately and do not click on any links.
This is a widespread e-mail scam and both PG&E and Atmos have stated these communications are not from their companies.
The e-mails have been sent to both PG&E and Atmos customers and non-customers. The fraudulent billing message references a fake account number and contains links to spam.
The e-mail provides links to view your bill, but if the recipient clicks on the link, it takes them to a compromised website that harbors malware.
