Beware of Phone Scam!

New Phone Scam Targets Cooperative Customers

Some customers of Virginia electric cooperatives have reported a new type of phone scam where the customer receives a phone call asking them to call a toll-free number and make immediate payment on their electric bill to avoid disconnection.  Although the caller ID may show this call is from your cooperative, it is not. Additionally, the scammer has copied the cooperative’s phone greeting and menu, therefore the customer believes they are really calling the cooperative.
