If you feel you are contacted by a potential scam, disconnect and call DP&L directly to verify account information before you make a payment. These cases are being investigated federally and the number of victims are growing rapidly. Call the appropriate law enforcement agency to file a report.

There have been reports of DP&L scams inside the village of Mechanicsburg. DP&L does not call demanding money nor will they send representatives to your door trying to collect a debt. The scams have representatives advising shut off notices if the debt is not paid upfront. If you encounter one of the scams over the phone, advise them that you will call the number on the back of your bill and make the payment or simply hang up your phone. Do not accept the number that they give you to make a payment. If you have already encountered somebody claiming they are from DP&L and you have given out your financial information, contact your financial institution and advise them so they may monitor your account for fraudulent activity. Please notify us immediately if you encounter any of these representatives.
