The caller requests a payment through a third-party service such as Green Dot; however, Infinite Energy emphasizes they do not use Green Dot services.
Most importantly, any call from Infinite Energy will include a verification of the customer’s account.
Here are some tips provided by Infinite Energy has provided for determining whether the call is a scam:
- They request what seems like a very large amount of money
- The amount of money requested is a round number, such as $1,400.00
- The phone number is unlisted
- The payment method is not officially accepted by Infinite Energy—Infinite Energy offers a variety of payment options which are listed online in the “Contact Us” section and on the back of monthly invoices.
