Indiana Michigan Power Customers Being Targeted by Scammers Created by kblakeslee on 10/2/2013 12:30:04 PM
INDIANA, (WOWO): Indiana Michigan Power customers continue to be targeted by scammers, according to a new statement from the company.
They say there are two scams at work. In one, the voice on the other end of the phone claims to represent I&M and threatens to cut off service if money is not paid to them immediately.
In the other, the caller says that the victim's electric meter needs to be replaced to avoid a fire hazard. In both cases the victim is instructed to pay the fee with a money order or a prepaid cash card.
Leaders with I&M say they will not call and ask that a bill or any fees associated with meter replacement be paid using a money order or prepaid cash card. If customers have questions regarding the status of electric service or have questions on how to make a legitimate payment they should have their account number ready and call Customer Solutions Center at 1-800-311-4634 (Indiana) or 1-800-311-6424 (Michigan).
