Incident Date01/17/2014 - 10:00 AM
Victim(s)Male, age 81, Madison
DetailsAn 81-year old Madison man knew it was a scam right away, but wanted to alert police to the fraud attempt as he figured others might also be contacted in a similar fashion. He received an email from the "PG&E Company" which indicated he was $500 in arrears for his MG&E utility bill. The would-be victim knew this was not true and did not respond to the bogus solicitation.
