Another apology call from my supposed electric utility offering me a rebate and 30% discount.

They asked me who my utility company is…

Me: You are calling to offer me an apology for overcharging my account and yet you don’t remember what your company name is?

Sir, we are trying to get you your rebate and we work with hundreds of utilities.

Me: You haven’t even told me your name yet?

My name is Karen.

Me: You don’t say.

Sir, is your electric utility Met Ed, Peco or PPL?

Me: None of those.

Sir, what is the name of your electric company?


Sir can you repeat that.


Is that new, what does it stand for?

Me: Hamster Wheel Powered

Do you know the address of the company and what rate they are charging?

Me: Well…

Did you say “Hamster”?

Me: Yes Hamster…as in the 4 legged furry rat looking things

Sir you need to take this serious.

Me: Oh, yes, scamming people is a serious business.

{scammer hung up}

Haha, HWP gets them every time.
