Electric utilities across the state, including some cooperatives. are noticing a sudden increase in phone fraud. Often times, the caller will say they work for a particular utility, threatening immediate disconnection if they don't receive payment over the phone.
Southwest Iowa REC will never call to threaten immediate disconnection and we urge them to end suspicious calls and contact the co-op directly to verify the call.
