SMECO alerts customers to avoid scams
Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative (SMECO) has been alerted to a fraud scam in which customers are asked to provide payment information in order to avoid having their electric service disconnected. SMECO warns customer-members not to provide personal financial or electric account information to unauthorized callers. Customers should not provide Green Dot or Moneygram payments to callers claiming to be from SMECO. According to Tom Dennison, managing director of government and public affairs, customers have recently contacted SMECO to notify the co-op that they have received fraudulent calls from people threatening to disconnect their electric service. He said, "It seems like every few months we get a wave of customers who say they've received scam phone calls. If customers receive a phone call from someone threatening to disconnect their power, they may hang up and call SMECO directly at 1-888-440-3311. Our contact center is open 24 hours a day, every day." Read More
