Scammers posing as VEC

Scammers hit the TN Valley this past week. Several of our members received phone calls demanding immediate payments via money grams or prepaid credit cards or their power would be turned off. VEC does not call and demand immediate payment. If you are concerned about a call you received, please hang up and call your local service center.

**VEC does not use social media (i.e. Craigslist, etc.) to advertise employment opportunities, items for sale, or home improvement services.
**VEC does not contact customers by phone and demand an immediate payment for electric service.
**VEC does not enter the homes of our customers unless a specific request has been made by the customer in advance (such as a request for an energy evaluation).
**VEC employees and contractors always carry proper identification.

Please call VEC if you have questions or concerns. We are happy to talk to you and provide information.
