Beware of scam demanding payment for past due utility service balances

Beware-phone-graphic250Members of various rural electric associations and public power districts have received scamming calls demanding payment for past due balances on electric bills. The caller fraudulently poses as an employee of the utility and threatens to shut off electric service if the member doesn’t make a payment immediately via payment services at local gas stations or through money orders.

In the event you are contacted by someone demanding a payment for utility service, do not give them any money and report the incident to local police. If you are ever in doubt that you are doing business with an official utility employee, please call your local power provider to confirm.
