Scam Alert
A business in ECE's service territory was the victim of a telephone scam this week. A caller who identified himself as being from East Central Energy demanded the owner immediately pay $500, using a pre-paid debit card, or power to the business would be shut off. The call came from an 866 number. ECE sends a written notice to members regarding their bill and offers many payment options. Be suspicious if a caller insists on the use of a pre-paid debit card or an immediate payment of any kind. Slam the scam! Hang up and call ECE at 1-800-254-7944 to verify your account status and report the scam.
