How To Spot A Scam

Posted: May 6, 2020

Recently, several Members have contacted us and reported that certain individuals called them pretending to represent WREC. One such incident happened on May 5. A man called one of our Members and said he was representing WREC and that she needed to pay her bill. This man, who identified himself as Michael Perez, advised her to go to a CVS pharmacy to make her payment. When she asked to speak to a supervisor he stated he was the supervisor. The number he was calling from was 800-452-2777. Rest assured that this individual did not represent WREC and we will never call you demanding payment or threaten to cut off your electricity for non payment. We thank the Members for bringing these scam attempts to our attention. Please review the picture information about how to spot a scam. Be safe and do not get scammed, especially during these trying times.
