There are reports of two scams targeting people in Hawaii. The first is a phone and email scam targeting customers of the Kauai Island Utility Cooperative.
KIUC officials say commercial customers have received phone calls from a person warning them to pay a past due electric bill by wire transferring money or their power would be shut off. Similar calls were reported last year.
KIUC says it does not call customers about late bills nor does it request wire transfers.
Customers have also been receiving a PG&E statement via email with previous unpaid balances. PG&E does not serve Kauai and the KIUC does not send email statements unless requested.
If you think you have been a victim of this scam, call Kauai police at 241-1711.
The Hawaii State Judiciary has also reported a scam that is targeting people worldwide through email.
The email scams claim to come from the Hawaii Intermediate Court of Appeals. They also say a complaint has been filed and a court date set. It then instructs the individual to click on a link to confirm details.
The Hawaii State Judiciary says it generally does not contact the public via email on official business.
If you receive an email you are unsure about, contact the judiciary's public affairs office at 539-4909.
