Lee County Citizens are receiving phone calls being told that they are going to have their Power cut off unless they pay a bill. The scammers want you to pay via Western Union. THIS IS A SCAM. If you receive a call like this…CONFIRM NO INFORMATION AND HANG UP…THEN CALL YOUR POWER COMPANY DIRECT AND ASK THEM IF THERE ARE ANY ISSUES ON YOUR ACCOUNT. THIS WAY YOU KNOW YOU ARE REALLY TALKING TO THE POWER COMPANY AND NOT A SCAMMER. You can also call 911 and notify Lee County Law Enforcement if you feel you are the victim of a Scam.
