UGI customers are receiving scam calls claiming they owe money and threatening service shutoff if they do not pay, the utility reported today.

“The calls appear to come from UGI, but customers are then told to call a different number to make a payment within 30 minutes or risk termination of service,” the utility said.

UGI is not making these calls. If a customer did owe money, this is not how UGI would handle it. Customers should not give out any information if they get a suspicious call. Contact UGI at 800-276-2722 with questions.
