Most of us keep close tabs on what we owe and have paid the electric company, but a new scam is preying on the people that don't.
Casey Hollis says it's happening to their Rappahannock Electric customers, with calls coming from a bogus company employee. People are being told that they owe money for overdue electric bills and could have their service disconnected if they don't pay. Some of the calls are also saying that they need account info. to pay for swapping out a faulty electric meter.
If you do get a call, don't give out any information and report it to the REC fraud line at 1-800-552-3904.
