Beware of Scammers
In one of the most prevalent phone scams, a caller may:
- Pretend to be from Orange & Rockland. They may even manipulate your caller ID to display Orange & Rockland's name.
- Threaten to turn off your power or gas within an hour.
- Demand immediate payment — often by prepaid debit card.
When someone comes to your door claiming to be from Orange & Rockland, ask for credentials. It's not rude, it's safe.
