Prince George Electric Cooperative Warns of Scam Emails
There is an email scam targeting residents of our service area and other areas of the country. We have received calls and notifications from some members reporting that they have received suspicious emails that appeared to be bills sent by PG&E (Pacific Gas & Electric). This is similar to emails and phone calls that have been happening in recent months throughout the country involving several utilities.
The security of our members’ personal information is taken very seriously. The only bill statement email a member would receive from us is if the member has signed up for online bill pay and would be clearly marked from Prince George Electric Cooperative.
If a member receives one of these emails requesting information about their account, they should delete and take the following precautions:
Do not respond to request
Do not click on any links in the email
Do not open any attachments
Do not provide any personal information
Report these contacts to Glenn Horst, Manager of Energy Services, at email@example.com
Prince George Electric Cooperative is investigating the situation and has contacted the proper authorities and we are not aware of any security breach.
