An email phishing scam is targeting both ENMAX customers and the broader public. Two different emails are circulating that appear to be sent from an ENMAX address and prompt recipients to click on a link or view a document.
If you receive a suspicious message, delete it. Do not click on the link or open the attachment. If you have already received this email and submitted your ENMAX login credentials, we recommend that you update your user name and password.
Customers are being sent a fraudulent text message claiming to be from ENMAX . The text states that the customer is owed a refund and can access it by clicking a link and submitting their banking information. This message is a scam. ENMAX does not contact customers by text message or issue refunds by e-transfer. A similar scam is also occurring over email.
If you receive this message, do not click on the link. Report the scam to The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501.
Thanks to alert customers, there has been a report of a man appearing at a customer’s door in Calgary wearing an ENMAX T-shirt while acting suspiciously and asking vague questions about energy use. ENMAX does not go door-to-door, but we do have meter readers out there who carry ENMAX ID.
Should you experience this please call police at 403-266-1234 (non-emergency) if the person is gone or 9-1-1 if person is still present.
This scam primarily targets small businesses across Alberta and Canada is
once again occurring in Calgary and Edmonton.
A caller claims to be from an energy company like ENMAX, and threatens that power will be cut off unless the bill is paid in full using pre-paid credit cards or a third-party online payment system like PayPal.
Adding to the confusion is that often a phone number will be left for the business owner to call that includes a copy of the ENMAX recorded greeting.
