PNM is warning customers throughout the state to be on the lookout for phone scams during the week of Christmas. PNM has received reports that scammers are adding a false PNM caller ID or are adding a false 505 prefix on their phone number to get you to answer, duping you into thinking it is legitimate. Once they have you on the phone, the scammer pretends to be with PNM, claims you are behind on your bill, and threatens to disconnect your electricity unless you pay within an hour with a pre-paid card or electronic banking transfer. You are recommended to firmly tell them you will contact PNM directly using the number on your bill, which is 888-DIAL-PNM (888-342-5766) or chat with us at
