Don't fall for phone scams
Phone scammers are at it again. Jackson Energy members have reported receiving phone calls telling them their electricity will be disconnected unless they pay their bill immediately over the phone with a debit, credit or prepaid card. The thieves are also getting more creative. Members say the incoming phone call shows up as Jackson Energy on the caller ID. They have been instructed, however, to call another number to make the payment. If you receive a call from someone demanding immediate payment, hang up. Then call Jackson Energy at 1 800-262-7480 to report the incident. Beware and don't fall victim to phone scams.
