Scam Alert for UCEMC Members!

Scammers

We told you about this in October, but it seems scammers are at it again. Some UCEMC members from the Carthage area report receiving a call that, in several cases, shows up on Caller ID as a local call.  Scammers are known to “hijack” the telephone numbers of local residents to make these calls.  A recording informs members that they are to experience a power outage in the next 30 minutes if they don’t pay their electric bill immediately over the phone. This is a scam! UCEMC will never call you asking for financial information.

Please inform us if these scammers contact you. 1-800-261-2940
