Scammers Impersonating Utilities

KEM Electric Cooperative wants to alert its members to a scam being directed at utility customers across the country. Customers have been targeted by scammers claiming to be a collections agent. The caller will impersonate the utility company, claiming the customer’s utility bill is overdue and needs to be paid immediately. If refused, the scammer will threaten disconnection.

The National Information Solutions Cooperative, which develops and supports software and hardware for cooperatives from its headquarters in Mandan, has had a number of reports of this scam from its cooperative members across the country, and shares this list of generalizations that seem common among these cases:

  • Sometimes the scammers would have the account number and amount due. This information may have been obtained through some type of social engineering.
  • Typically, a prepaid debit card number has been requested. In most cases, the scammer even provided a callback number in case a prepaid debit card was not immediately available.
  • The caller ID number has been spoofed to look as if it is actually the utility company calling.
  • Typically, commercial accounts have been targeted, as information may be easier to obtain.
  • Several larger electric utilities have already been targeted.

KEM Electric Cooperative encourages all members to be aware of this scam. KEM Electric Cooperative does call those with delinquent accounts to make arrangements for payments, however those without delinquent accounts are not contacted. If you are unsure about the call, hang up and call KEM Electric Cooperative directly.

If you have any questions about this issue, feel free to contact the KEM Electric Cooperative.
