JPS is warning customers to be on the lookout for fraudulent emails from persons claiming to be associated with the light and power company.

The Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS) is warning customers to be on the lookout for fraudulent emails from persons claiming to be associated with the light and power company.

It says customers have been receiving 'Service Suspension' emails.

The fake emails are originating from a calljps@jpsco.com account and indicate that payments are outstanding and that service will be suspended.

However, the company says it does not issue disconnection notices by email.

It says customers in receipt of such emails should delete them immediately and not share their JPS account information or any other private data, with suspicious email accounts.

The company is working to have the matter resolved as quickly as possible.
