Scammers are targeting Minnesotans with fraudulent calls about Minnesota’s Energy Assistance Program. The Minnesota Department of Commerce’s Mo Schriner says in the scam…

“People being asked to provide a bank account or credit card information, our energy assistance program does not require them to provide that, so that is going to be a red flag.”

Schriner says you can always hang up and call directly to your utility or local energy assistance service provider if you have any questions or suspect you’re being scammed.
