(ABC 6 News) - Officials at People’s Energy Cooperative want customers to know there is a scam going around.

A person with an 801-area code is calling people, claiming to be with the company. The caller informs the person they're calling, that if they don’t pay them with a credit card, their power will be shut off.

The person calling is described as a female who speaks “broken English”. If you get the call, officials say do not give out your credit card information.
