Hawai'i Gas alerts public to scam

By Star-Advertiser staff


Hawai‘i Gas is alerting the public about a scam involving people impersonating Hawai‘i Gas in an attempt to solicit money.

The company said it is aware of at least one instance in which a person claiming to be a Hawai‘i Gas employee named Richard Koizumi approached a customer in the Kalihi area. The impersonator said the company was upgrading and exchanging gas meters in the area and asked for a $1,000 cash deposit.

The company said legitimate Hawai‘i Gas employees wear a company ID badge and drive vehicles with the company logo. Customers should not provide personal, confidential or financial information to any unidentified person, be cautious when responding to phone solicitations and report suspicious activity to police.
