Scam or Not: Exelon employees asking for PEPCO/Washington Gas bills
A few weeks ago, we had someone from Exelon walking door to door on our block in Petworth, right off Grant Circle.
He asked if we had heard that PEPCO and Washington Gas had been purchased by Exelon. He also asked if we had heard about their low-usage subscriber discount (something like that). Essentially, if your usage is below a certain level on their charts, you are eligible for a deep discount with Exelon now that they owned the two.
Here’s where it gets weird:
We’d heard rumblings about Exelon purchasing PEPCO but nothing about Washington Gas.
He also asked for a copy of our latest bill.
I did not feel comfortable giving a complete stranger our latest bill. Did this happen to anyone else? Scam or not?
