BATON ROUGE- Entergy is warning customers about a scam, where con artists are trying to trick people into thinking they are late in utility payments.

The calls warn people they are late, and if they don't pay power will be disconnected within the hour.

It's totally false, the company said Friday.

Entergy said it makes courtesy calls if services are going to be cut, but are automated and not from a live person. The company also said it never demands payment immediately.

People who receive the fake calls are asked to notify Entergy.
