Beware – Phone Scammers are at Work!

Co-op members are reporting phone calls from individuals claiming to be from SSVEC and informing those members that they owe money on their account and their power will be disconnected immediately unless they purchase a prepaid card and pay the amount that is “owed.”

Though there are a number of “red flags” with such a call, some people are confused and a few have even followed through with making a “payment” to these scammers.
Please note: if you receive a call like this or one that sounds in any way suspicious, hang up and call your local SSVEC office. We’ll be happy to provide the status of your account.
