Nova Scotia Power and Halifax Regional Police have sent out tweets warning residents of a scam regarding a power bill.

The power utility first posted a tweet saying a caller is posing as a NSP employee telling a customer their service will be cut off unless a payment is made.

The caller is looking for the payment to be made in bitcoin.

If you have received a call of this nature, Halifax Police say to not engage with the caller and to contact Halifax Police.
