(01/28/14) - DTE Energy say its customers are being hit by the same debit card billing scam that targeted Consumers Energy customers.
Consumers says there had been more than 100 fraud attempts against its customers, using the green dot pre-paid debit card, since November.
In each case, the caller demands payment within an hour, telling the customers to buy a green dot card.
DTE says it has dealt with 29 fraud cases since the beginning of the year.
The utility says 100 of its small business customers have lost at least $40,000 in the past five months to people posing as employees.
