Officials from Consumers Energy, Michigan State Police and prominent business organizations encourage Michigan business owners and residents to take steps to protect themselves from ongoing customer scams that continue across the state entering this holiday season.

“We are aware of over 1,000 attempts by criminals to con small business owners into making payments they believe are intended for Consumers Energy,” said Annette Gardiner, Consumers Energy’s Vice President for shared services. “We want to provide the public with information to recognize and report these criminal attempts, and to make sure they don’t become a victim.”
