Well, they’re at it again… We have just learned that there is an active scam going on with calls being made to members of Farmers’ Electric Cooperative (FEC) and customers of Xcel Energy. The scammers are demanding payment of electrical accounts and threatening disconnection of electric service if immediate payment by credit card is not made. Again, this is a SCAM!
If you receive such a call, hang up immediately and call FEC at 1-800-445-8541. These scammers want you to make an immediate payment or they are trying to get your credit card information or bank information. Do not give them anything!
Again, if you get a call and you suspect someone is claiming to be a representative of FEC and you have your doubts, contact the office immediately for verification. Call FEC at 1-800-445-8541.
Also, if you are contacted by these scammers and would like to file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), you can by calling 1-877-382-4357.
