Utility Scams

Please be wary of energy bill scammers. They often pretend to be utility representatives to steal your money or identity. Be wary of callers who threaten to disconnect your service unless you share financial account information or use an online payment service to pay your bill immediately. Tipmont REMC will NEVER call and ask for sensitive personal information over the phone. If you have questions about your account or the legitimacy of a utility company service or offer please call us at (800) 726-3953.
