Wasco County

On Tuesday morning in the 56800 block of Wamic Market Road, caller reported that two males contacted him via phone and said they were with Wasco Electric. He was told he hadn’t paid his bill and if he wanted power kept on he needed to purchase a money pack and call them back with the PIN number.

The next day he was called again and told the original $1,000 he paid was not the full amount and he needed to provide another $500. He was later called and told the PIN number did not go through on that $500, so he needed to buy another card for $500 and call with correct PIN number, and he was told the original $500 would be refunded to him. Caller later contacted Wasco Electric and was advised he was being scammed. The victim of the scam lost $2,000.
