We have been contacted by some of our customers indicating they have received calls from someone who is saying they are from the Michigan Electric company and if they don’t make a payment right away their electricity will be shut off. The person calling is requesting credit card information.
This is a scam. We would like to remind our customers you should not give out any information.
Some key points we’d like to emphasize include:
– We would not call customers and tell them their electricity is going to be shut off if they don’t give us payment information.
– We would not initiate a call requesting payment or credit card information.
– If a customer receives a call requesting private information, they should not give it out unless they are sure of the identity of the person requesting it.
