Another scam alert.
This one is from Vectren.
This is another version of the multi-state bill payment scam that is resurfacing this summer in scattered locations throughout the U.S.
The way the scam works is that you receive a phone call from an individual claiming to represent the utility company and telling you that if you don’t make an immediate payment, sometimes within an hour, you will be cut off.
The person calling usually wants you to use a prepaid debit card to make the payment.
Just like every other utility company, Vectren will never ask you to do something like this.
If you have questions contact the Vectren customer service center at vectren.com and use the live chat option or call 1-800-227-1376
Customer service is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.
