Maui Electric Company today said it has received reports that people claiming to be MECO employees have been contacting customers by phone and asking for personal information.

“The impersonators are telling customers that their electric bill is overdue and must be paid or electric service will be disconnected,” a Maui Electric news release said.

The utility said customers should not provide personal, confidential, or financial information to any unidentified person, and to report any suspicious activity to MECO or the Maui Police Department.

People may call MECO’s customer service desk at 871-9777 on Maui and 877-871-8461 on Molokai and Lanai.
