PNM is warning customers about what they’re calling an aggressive and sophisticated scam using their company’s name. 

Just this week, the utility says it’s received at least 65 reports of someone calling and claiming to be with the company, telling customers they have to make a payment or their power will be shut off. 

The scammers have even figured out how to come up as PNM on caller ID, and play PNM hold messages if a customer calls back. 

PNM is asking anyone who gets a call like this to report it.
