VEC Not Behind Prank Calls

Some VEC customers in the Putnam County area have received pranks calls that were identified as coming from Volunteer Energy Cooperative.

Cooperative officers have used phone logs to verify the calls did not originate from VEC, however, those receiving the calls saw “VEC” on their caller ID equipment. The pranksters typically ask one or two legitimate sounding questions with their third question being, “Is your refrigerator running?”

When the customer replies yes, of course the caller says, “Well then you better go catch it.”
