Since the start of Febru- ary, approximately 50 Spanish-speaking custom— ers have reported receiv— ing a call from someone pretending to work for MidAmerican Energy who threatened to shut off their power immediately if payment was not made. Unfortunater several cus- tomers reported losing money. "Education is the best way to put a stop to these scams,” said Terry Ousley, Vice president, customer service for MidAmerican Energy. How the Scam Works: The scammers generally request payment in one of two ways: either on the phone using a credit card or by calling back a specific number, which often re— sembles MidAmerican Energy’s phone response system, and paying with a pre-paid (Green Dot) card: MidAmerican Energy ac. cepts many different forms of payment. A spe- cific payment method is never insisted upon when paying your bill. The scammers are per- sistent and aggressive. They usersgphisticated methods to trick, custom- ers, including Caller ID technology that makes the call appear as if it is com- ing from the utility when it is not. Customers should hang up and call their local po- . lice or MidAmerican En: .ergy at 1-888-427—5632 if ' they receive a suspicious call. Red flags that it's a scam: 1. The caller is threat- ening immediate discon- nection. Sometimes the caller will claim a crew is already en route to the business to disconnect ser- vice. MidAmerican En- ergy makes several at- tempts to contact custom— ers regarding overdue bills; disconnection is a last resort, not a first step in the process. 2. The caller insists on a prepaid debit card (of- ten a Green Dot card) as the only acceptable form of payment. Mid-Ameri- can Energy accepts several different forms of pay- ment; a company cus- tomer service representa— tive can go over these op— tions with customers. 3. The caller asks for credit card numbers, ac- count numbers, balances or other personal infor- mation. Mid American En- ergy will-not ask you for this information over the phone. Customers should never give out personal information.
