Westport, CT- Unfortunately, following this week’s storm, the Westport Police Department has received complaints from multiple businesses in town regarding a power company scam.

Eversource crews have been working tirelessly to restore power to residents and businesses in Westport. The company does not require additional payment for this service. Please do not provide personal information or credit card information to anyone over the phone. If you have any questions about the legitimacy of a call received, please contact Eversource directly at 800- 286-2000.
