UGI warns of email scam

A number of UGI customers have received emails, purportedly from either PG&E Energy or Atmos Energy Corp., stating they owe money for energy bills. UGI urges anyone who receives this email to delete it immediately and not click on any links. This is a widespread email scam, and both PG&E and Atmos have stated these communications are not from their companies.

The emails have been sent to both PG&E and Atmos customers and non-customers. The fraudulent billing message references a fake account number and contains links to spam.

The email provides links to view your bill, but if the recipient clicks on the link, it takes them to a compromised website that harbors malware.

UGI Utilities has headquarters in Reading and serves 660,000 customers in 45 Pennsylvania counties and one county in Maryland. Customers interested in additional information can go to www.ugi.com, Facebook at www.facebook.com/ugiutilities or Twitter at www.twitter.com/ugi_utilities.
