Energy-Saving Scam Making The Rounds Again

A telephone scam involving NB power is making the rounds again.

The power company has been getting reports from customers of someone calling on behalf of the company.  The scammer tries to sell the customer a device that will save them money on their power bill.

NB Power says they are not selling any such devices and advise you to call police or RCMP if you have been solicited.

The scam first reared its head back in 2010.

Power Restored

The lights are back on for almost all of the province.

NB Power reports only a handful of customers are without electricity in the province. 

Many communities in the province such as Fredericton and St. Stephen were in the dark for almost 2 days after Friday's snowfall.

The outages were mostly caused by branches and trees hitting power lines.

More Education Options Needed In City

He tells CHSJ News more degrees need to be offered.

He says by creating more education options here in the city, it will attract jobs and boost the economy.
