ANN ARBOR – MPSC Commissioner Tremaine Phillips in this video interview warns Michigan residents about utility scams where someone phones them to threaten utility cutoff unless they are paid immediately by credit card or even bitcoin – that should be a giveaway since DTE and Consumers Energy don’t yet take cryptocurrency.

He also talks about various programs available to help people pay their gas, electric and phone bills during the pandemic.

The mission of the Michigan Public Service Commission is to protect the public by ensuring safe, reliable, and accessible energy and telecommunications services at reasonable rates for Michigan’s residents.
