Posted: August 1, 2021 at 6:00 am

Every day, millions of Americans are targeted by scammers through phone calls, emails, text messages, online or in person. Scammers’ tactics can change daily, which is why it’s important for consumers to stay on top of the latest scam reports from local and national news outlets as well as your local utility companies.

Just last month, several Halifax EMC members were targeted through a phone scam where the scammers demanded immediate payment and threatened to shut off power if the money was not received. Remember, Halifax EMC will never call  you and demand immediate payment without notice.
