|We want you to be aware of a growing phone scam that is targeting utility customers, especially business owners. Phone scammers posing as your utility provider call and insist you are delinquent on your bill. They may also threaten to turn off your power, rig caller ID to make it look like the call is from your utility provider or tell you to put the money on a prepaid debit card and ask for the card number. Don't believe it.|
DO NOT pay over the phone if immediate payment is demanded to avoid a disconnection. Here's what to do if the call seems suspicious.
1. Hang up.
2. Call Empire Electric at (970) 565-4444 or (800) 709-3726.
3. Call the police.
