Beware of Scammers!
A & N Electric Cooperative is warning members to be aware of a bill-paying scam that asks them to disclose Social Security and bank routing numbers.
Scammers claim electric consumers can have their utility bills paid under an Obama Administration program. No such program exists.
The solicitations have been made door-to-door, online and by phone. Members are asked for personal information and then given fake bank account numbers to use for making a payment on their utility bill. Due to this scam, A & N has currently suspended the use of E-checks on their website. All other features of the website are working as usual. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Members are urged to alert police if they're contacted about the scam.
