Four-County Electric Power Association is urging its members to beware of a potential collections scam.
Association officials are warning members to beware of anyone posing as a 4-County employee calling member homes and/or businesses to collect immediate payment on money owed or their power will be disconnected.
Four-County does not call members to collect payment. The association warns members (commercial and residential) never to give personal financial data, such as bank account numbers or Social Security numbers, to anyone who calls or visits seeking that information.
“This is not the way we conduct business,” said 4-County System Security Coordinator Jimmie Daniels. “If you have any concerns about phone calls where individuals are claiming to be representatives of 4-County, please contact us.”
Four-County officials urge members who suspect an attempted scam to contact the cooperative at 1-800-431-1544.
