It has been reported that Toronto Hydro customers have been receiving text messages from an entity posing as Toronto Hydro asking them to accept an e-transfer.
Please be aware that these are not genuine and if you receive a text like this, report to Canadian Anti-fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501 (quote file #844396) & to Toronto Hydro using their online form: http://torontohydro.com/reportfraud
Currently, we have had no reports of this happening to Oshawa customers.
Fraudsters are sending texts that appear to be from Toronto Hydro & asking customers to accept e-transfers.
