A Queensland electricity retailer is warning customers to be wary of an email scam seeking credit card details.
Ergon Energy says customers in North Queensland and Toowoomba have received emails from a bogus electricity company seeking payment for accounts that don’t exist.
Ergon spokesman Brett Milne says the emails from `Pacific Gas & Electric’ are designed to seek credit card and personal information for fraudulent use.
“To my knowledge there is no such electricity retailer as Pacific Gas & Electric offering services in regional Queensland,” he said in a statement.
Mr Milne said customers who received the emails should contact the Office of Fair Trading or the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.
