Nelson phone scam reported

Nelson police are giving some details about the latest phone scam.

Businesses have been called by someone claiming to be from a local hydro company saying their power is about to cut off.

They’re told to buy a Pay Power Reload Pack – which is like a pre-paid credit card – at the grocery store and report the serial number back to them.
