ENDICOTT -- As we've reported Binghamton, police say scam artists are going around telling local residents they can help them with their utility bills during these cold months if they sign up with a company called "Just-Energy"
Police say it's a rip off. Richard Torres Maldonado says his family was a victim to the scam and their electric bill went from $40 to $300.
"They were a little agressive, really pushy. They are trying to look for people young like us, or old people out there that are not smart enough to understand this isn't real," said Richard Torres-Maldonado.
Binghamton police say two twenty-year-old men are going door to door. Police say if anyone from "just energy" approaches you to call them at 723-5321.
