REC Warns of Potential Phone Scams

Sept. 16, 2019

REC urges members to be alert for phone calls from scammers who claim to be from REC stating that accounts are overdue.

If you receive a suspicious call, please keep the following in mind:

* REC does not use collection agencies to contact members by phone.
* Employees from REC do attempt to contact members with delinquent payments to warn them they are subject to disconnection, but representatives do not demand immediate payment.
* If you receive a phone call from someone claiming to be an REC employee demanding immediate payment, report the suspicious activity to local law enforcement.

If you are uncertain if a call you received came from a legitimate REC representative please call REC directly at 1-800-552-3904 to confirm.
