If you receive a text that states you’re receiving a refund from Nova Scotia Power, we have bad news for you. It’s a scam.
The text claims the utility has a refund for the customer and asks the recipient to click on a link to access the money.
As tempting as it is, Nova Scotia Power warns customers not to click on the link.
The utility stresses they do not communicate with customers about bill payments or credits via text messaging.
