An ECE business account has alerted us to a scam in which a caller, claiming to represent ECE, threatened to shut off his electricity unless he immediately made a payment on his account. The business owner was told to go to another business to make the payment. This is a scam. Be cautious if anyone insists on an immediate payment of any kind. Hang up and contact us at 1-800-254-7944 to verify your account status and report the scam. We encourage you to contact local law enforcement if you receive one of these calls.
