Cloverland Electric Warns Members of Green Dot Payment Scam
Cloverland Electric is warning members of a recent phone scam.
The co-op says they have received several complaints from members that someone claiming to be with Cloverland Electric demands payments for electricity bills or power will be disconnected.
The caller demands the victim pay only using a Green Dot money card and requests personal information be faxed to 215-516-2015.
The calls come from number 800-859-1928, which has also been used in Kentucky with the same kind of payment scam.
“Our members did absolutely the right thing. They notified the co-op and did not giving the scammer any personal or financial information,” says Todd Chapman, manager of communications.
