Scam Alert

MLEC has been alerted to a telephone scam from callers claiming to be with an electric utility. The scam involves callers employing techniques to defraud customers. Some threaten customers with disconnecting electric service to their home or business if they don't make a payment immediately. The scammer instructs them to send money or pay over the phone before their power is shut off. The caller-ID may be falsified so it appears to originate from the utility company, a practice known as "spoofing."

If you are ever concerned or uncomfortable about a caller claiming to represent MLEC, do not provide personal information and contact us at 800-450-2191.
