Telephone scam targets electric customers
Yampa Valley Electric Association is warning its customers in Northwest Colorado about a phone scam that has targeted some customers in Craig.
Someone posing as the electric cooperative has reportedly called customers in Craig and demanded they provide a credit card number to pay their electric bill within 30 minutes or their service would be shut off.
YVEA spokeswoman Tammi McKenzie said the electric cooperative does not make calls of this nature, and members should not give out their credit card information on the phone.
McKenzie said most of the calls associated with the scam have originated in Craig, but YVEA is advising all its customers about the calls in the event the scam spreads.
This isn't the first time scammers have tried to pose as YVEA to get money from customers.
In 2013, scammers contacted residents and businesses and threatened to disrupt their electric service if they did not buy a MoneyPak prepaid card.

The Craig Daily Press has been moving toward putting all rural subscribers onto postal routes for reliability, safety for carriers and cost effectiveness.
Last week, an emergency loss of a carrier made it imperative that the paper move the home delivered rural subscribers north and east of Craig to that postal route immediately.
We hope all customers are happy with this move and apologize for the suddenness of it. Those with concerns about this move, can call Circulation Manager Gary Cole at 970-824-2600. Thank you for your continued patronage and subscriptions.
