Frauds & scams

We often get reports from our customers of being approached at their home, or by phone, by someone who gives the impression they work for Manitoba Hydro.

In most cases, this contact was not asked for and is an aggressive attempt to try to get a customer to buy services or products that they don’t need, or to send money for an unverified unpaid bill.

Scammers often target seniors living alone, but anyone can be a target. It’s important that you know when you could be misled. Protect yourself and your money. Share this information with friends and family to keep them safe too.

These scams have been reported to us by our customers:

What to do if you are contacted
