Yampa Valley Electric Association warns of phone scam

— Yampa Valley Electric Association is warning customers to be aware of a phone scam occurring in Northwest Colorado.

According to YVEA, scammers have contacted residents and businesses by phone in Steamboat Springs and Craig. The scammers claim to be from the “electric company” and say they are trying to collect payments and that if the customer does not buy a MoneyPak prepaid card, his or her services will be disconnected.

YVEA wants to remind members never to give their personal information over the phone. Also, refuse any offer that advises the purchase of a prepaid card like MoneyPak.

YVEA customers can pay their bill online by using YVEA’s secure e-bill website.
