SOUTH KENTUCKY RECC ISSUE SCAM ALERT TO ITS MEMBERS
posted 06/25/2014 by firstname.lastname@example.org
Members of South Kentucky RECC are being warned about scam artists who are reportedly posing as workers of the cooperative who are contacting RECC members telling them they have a short window of time to pay their electric bill. The scam artist then offers to take care of the payment if the member will give them their bank account information. RECC officials say their employees do not call members reminding them to pay their bill and offering electronic payment over the phone. They advise to never give out personal or account information to anyone unless you have initiated the contact and are sure of the person’s identity. Those working for RECC, including regular employees and contractors, will also have proper identification and should be driving vehicles clearly marked.
