Beware of a telephone call from subject claiming that he/she is employed with SCE using telephone number (760) 600-7023 (Magic Jack) and or using the name of Angel Martinez or any other name.

According to Mammoth Lakes Police, two business owners in town were contacted (by telephone) by a subject named Angel Martinez.

The subject told the business owners that he is with SCE and that their power will be shut off in 55 minutes unless he pays $495.55 by way of Green Dot.

The subject told the business owner to go to Rite Aid and purchase a Green Dot card with the indicated dollar amount.

The subject also gave the business owner a 14 digit case number.

Fortunately the business owners didn’t follow through with the request/scam.
