A co-op member notified us that they received a call from someone posing as an electric co-op employee. The caller told them that immediate payment is needed to avoid disconnection of utility services. Please be aware, these scam artists can be very convincing. Never give your credit card number or other personal information over the phone without verifying the call. If you receive a call that asks you to pay using a third-party system, or at all appears suspicious, please hang up and contact us at 1-800-950-2667 OR 575-546-8838. Do not call the number the caller gives you. By calling us directly, you can talk to a service representative who will confirm your bill and let you know of any problems with your account. Please report all incidents to your local law enforcement agency.
