Don't get scammed by fake utility callers

If not for ​​a coincidence, a telephone scam reported by a utility customer in Cochise County may have ended badly. The potential victim contacted Sulphur Springs Valley Electric Company to report receiving a phone call from someone who identified themselves as working for Arizona Public Service. The caller said the electricity for the address would be shut off, due to lack of payment.

​The potential victim notified the caller that APS was not the service provider at the address, which prompted the caller to immediately hang up.

Sometimes the scenario ends differently, warned Jack Blair, Chief of Member Services for SSVEC. "The caller usually tells their victim that unless the bill is paid immediately, service is going to be disconnected. They then say need to go and buy a prepaid credit card and meet them somewhere to pay," Blair said. Blair said SSVEC and other utilities do not call customers.

"We don't demand a prepaid credit card and we don't meet you in a parking lot," Blair said.

Customers with concerns or questions about their electric bill should contact SSVEC directly, at  (520) 459-0973, or APS at (800) 240-2014.
