Type of a scam Identity Theft

I answered call- they said I was on a recorded line and ask if I could hear them?- I answered “Yes”. Without thinking- I am concerned that they recorded my “Yes” and can use it against me. They told me someone in my household was eligible for free hearing aides. I said no need. They went on to say for my time they would give me a free Cruise ship voucher in return for telling all my friends what a great experience I had. At that point I hung up.

They called impersonating Pepco, our electric company for our business. The contact information is 202-796-6736 ext. 1706. Ask for Mr. Jason Taurus. That is the "account manager" that impersonates Pepco. They insisted that our business was about to be disconnected due to unpaid bills, and that we had to -wire- money to them ASAP in order for them to cancel their technicians.
