Scam phone calls claiming to be with Xcel Energy


The Amarillo Police Deparment has received several phone calls today from concerned citizens who have been contacted by someone claiming to be with Xcel Energy.

The caller is spoofing the Xcel Energy 1-800-895-4999 number and claiming that the person they called is behind on payments and needs to pay today before their service is discontinued. In every call the scammer has asked the person to call 1-800-315-2172 and make the payment.

This is a scam call..

If you have a question about the status of your service, call the real Xcel Energy number at 1-800-895-4999 and ask. Do not call a separate number and make a payment.
