SCAM ALERT: Fraudulent phone calls
Tipmont will NEVER call and ask for sensitive personal information over the phone.| Monday, September 14, 2015
A Tipmont REMC member recently received a phone call from a scammer posed as a utility employee. Please be wary of callers asking for your credit card or other financial account information and personally identifiable information. In this specific case, the perpetrator will threaten to disconnect your service unless you buy a pre-paid debit card or use an online payment service to pay your bill at once.
Please call Tipmont Member Services at (800) 726-3953 if you receive a suspicious call regarding your Tipmont REMC account. We also ask that you help us tell other Tipmont members about this scam. Tipmont REMC takes these issues very seriously and we work closely with Federal, State, and Local authorities to help protect our members against criminal activity.
