The Pasco County Sheriff’s office is warning residents about a scam involving Duke Energy. People are reportedly getting calls from someone who says they’re with Duke Energy and telling them to go to the store to buy prepaid cards to pay their bills and wait for a phone call from “Mr. Robinson.” They ask for the numbers on the back of those cards and yes, you lose the money. The PCSO would like to hear from you if you’ve been a victim of the scam.
