Be wary of scam calls

There’s a new twist to efforts by scammers to trick members of electric co-ops to part with their money.

The latest effort involved scammers telling members of a central Florida cooperative that they have a new energy provider, and they’re directed to begin paying a new company instead of their energy provider. According to the cooperative, only a handful of members were contacted.

The most common scam attempt involves residential or commercial members receiving a call from someone who claims to represent the power company. The member is told their account is past due and if payment isn’t made immediately the account will be shut off.

Clay Electric reminds members to be wary of any caller who makes such claims. The member should hang up immediately and call the cooperative. Members should never share personal or financial information with a caller who claims to represent the cooperative.
