Update 05/29/2018: These types of calls are still being reported to us. The callers have begun spoofing their numbers to be a 1-800 number that is only a digit off from the legitimate SCE customer service number. The valid number to SCE is 1-800-655-4555. With the close of the Federal tax season, scammers have moved on to utility payment scams. We are receiving reports from local businesses that they are receiving false Southern California Edison calls. The caller attempts to obtain immediate payment from the business or individual to prevent their electricity from being shut off. Please do not submit payment to these callers. Hang up, and if possible, block the number they called from. If you have any concerns about your electricity account, call SCE at their customer service number 1-800-655-4555. If you do receive one of these calls, you may send the details to csinfogov@sce.com Southern California Edison (SCE) Mammoth Times

Mammoth Police will be a drop off location for National Prescription Drug Take Back Day Tomorrow Saturday, April 28, 2018, the Mammoth Lakes Police Department (MLPD) will be participating in the DEA’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. From 10:00AM to 2:00PM, Mammoth Lakes Police offices will be accepting current and expired prescription drugs to be destroyed. The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6.4 million Americans abused controlled prescription drugs. The study shows that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet. We are working in partnership with the DEA to reduce the accessibility of unwanted prescription drugs found in our community. Residents are encouraged to clean out their medicine cabinets of unneeded or expired medications and turn them in to MLPD. Any medication turned in will be promptly destroyed. #mammothlakespd #Drugtakeback #deatakeback
