Pasadena Water & Power Is Not Calling Demanding Payment
Scammers are working in full force trying to trick people into sending them money. The calls look like they are coming from the City with a (626) 744-XXXX number but will then ask for a return call to a 1-800 number. PWP never calls customers to make payment over the phone. Scammers will ask you to go to a local grocery store or nearby pharmacy to make payment using a gift card. This is definitely a red flag. Please check out this helpful video:
If you or somebody you know was a victim of a fraud attempt and made payment to a scammer, please call and report the incident to the non-emergency police line, 626.744.4241.
Have you been side blinded by your mortgage company trying to up sell you insurance, or worse, trying adding it to your mortgage and collecting monthly basically adding a premium to your mortgage. And people wonder how mortgage companies make money…… this sort of practice is sickening. And needs to be stopped, I smell a class-action lawsuit for deceptive practices.

As the pandemic continues to cause decline in business and disruptions in the economy, restaurants are faced with another challenge on top of everything else.
With their increase overhead and decreasing margins services like Grubhub, Postmates, UberEats, DoorDash and others take a percentage of potential profits from restaurant owners. So with the increase in these services the cost of meals are increasing.
Some services have cut fees during the pandemic, but the fees are still high. Fees range from 13.5 to 40% of the order. Assuming the claim is that restaurant would not have received the order had it not been for the service. Some cities have imposed a fee cap on these services/
I encourage friends and others to pickup direct from the restaurant when possible.
