Scam Targeting REC Members

If you’re a member of Rappahannock Electric Cooperative, watch out for a scam. REC spokeswoman Ann Lewis says somebody has been calling members and demanding payment on what they claim to be past due bills. In some cases, they threaten to cut off electricity in 20 minutes. Lewis says the utility does not make those type of calls. She also says be wary of anybody coming to your house. An REC worker will have an identification badge, and they will never come into the house unless an appointment has been made. Contact REC if you’ve received such a call.
