Bill payment scam targets local utility members

Members are receiving scam phone calls claiming their electricity will be turned off within hours unless they make an immediate payment. Individuals impersonating TCEC and other utilities try to gain access to the member’s bank account or ask for payment through a third-party vendor or a prepaid card.

Payment scams in general are an issue nationwide so it’s important all members are aware of the possibility they may be contacted.
