Scammers are calling electricity customers and claiming that they will cut off power immediately unless payment is made.

Hang up! Do not provide payment or personal information. If you have concerns about the legitimacy of a utility disconnection call, hang up and contact your utility company directly, using contact information you know to be valid.

Right now, the scam is targeting Vermont electricity customers and claiming to be “Green Mountain Power.” This scam has used other utility company names in the past, including Vermont Electric Co-op, and Burlington Electric.

If you have questions about this scam, or have lost money to this scam, please call the Consumer Assistance Program at 800-649-2424.

The DMV has created an on-line transaction feature that allows for customers to purchase a 60 day Temporary Registration on-line. This transaction requires the customer to enter their name, address, and vehicle information and pay a $6.00 fee.

Upon completion, the customer will be able to print a temporary registration plate and the corresponding temporary registration—both on standard 8.5x11” sheets of paper.

The customer will only be able to purchase one temporary registration. The temporary plate once issued will; need to be displayed in the back window or rear of the vehicle. This temporary registration can be used for inspection purposes.
