Announcements: SCAM ARTISTS TARGETING UTILITY CUSTOMERS

Title

SCAM ARTISTS TARGETING UTILITY CUSTOMERS

Body

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO KENHORST RESIDENTS Scam artists claiming to work for Met-Ed have been targeting area residents and businesses. Met-Ed customers are urged to be aware of the ongoing, nationwide scam involving a telephone caller posing as a utility company employee threatening to shut off power unless immediate payment is made. If your Met-Ed account is past-due, you will receive a written notice of your account status, with instructions on how to avoid disconnection of service. While a Met-Ed representative may call a customer whose bill is in arrears in order to remind them that a payment is due, the representative would explain how a payment can be made using our established payment options. They will NOT demand payment over the phone. If a caller threatens to shut off your power unless immediate payment is received, hang up. If you wish to verify your account status or the identity of a Met-Ed employee, please call 1-800-545-7741.
