On the island divided by color, class, religion and gender, Ti Moune’s determination and capacity to love attempts to break the wall that separates the societies and unite them.

Power company warns customers of ongoing phone scam
Alameda Municipal Power (AMP) is warning customers of a phone scam. AMP has received reports that scammers are impersonating AMP employees and demanding immediate payment from customers. In addition, AMP received a report of a caller falsely claiming to be a PG&E employee who was collecting payments for AMP.
The scammers are asking for customers’ credit card numbers and using a recording of an AMP’s employee’s voice. Anyone who gets a call demanding immediate payment on his or her account should be suspicious. AMP will never ask for credit card or debit card numbers and only provides automated courtesy calls to accounts that are already delinquent. AMP recommends that anyone who suspects he or she is a victim of this scam call the Alameda Police Department to file a report at 510-337-8340. Find more information at alamedamp.com/scams.
