Another round of the Eversource scam has hit residents of the town.

A call is received from someone who identifies themselves as an Eversource employee. The victim is then told that they have an overdue bill. The victim is then instructed to obtain Moneypack cards in order to pay the bill.

On occasion the scammer will call the victim back after receiving payment and tell them that they owe more money and to use the Moneypack cards to send additional funds.

Eversource DOES NOT accept Moneypack cards as a form of payment. This scam continues to occur despite a campaign to educate people against it.

FYI: The phone number that the most recent call was from is 866-243-7583.

Some helpful questions to ask someone who calls you to collect a bill are:

Ask them for your account number.
Ask them for the name on the account.
Ask them the address that the account is connected with.

A scam artist is not going to have any of this information and your next step should be hanging up the phone.

Here is a one minute clip of today's K-9 Relief Ride. HPD assisted with closing down the on-ramps to Route 6.

If you look closely you might catch a glimpse of HPD Officer Neil Nolan on HPD's police bike. Neil was a lead bike and assisted with organizing the ride.
