If you get a call from someone claiming to represent utilities company Pepco and they offer you a prepaid Green Dot Visa, beware. It's probably a scam, according to an MSBNC story.
The callers claim to represent Pepco and tell customers that they need to make a payment by purchashing a Green Dot Visa card, according to the MSNBC report. The caller then directs the customer to another number where the info is obtained and the monetary value taken from the Green Dot Visa, the MSNBC story said.
So far 22 people have been contacted about the bogus Visa cards.
