Kauai Island Utility Cooperative is alerting customers about a phone scam where the caller claims the customer’s account is delinquent to obtain financial information.
The cooperative has recently received calls from customers who said they received a call from someone informing them they had to pay their outstanding amount or their electricity will be turned off.
KIUC does not call customers about late bills, said the cooperative in a news release. Customers have faced similar schemes last September and in the past few years.
The cooperative warns customers not to give any confidential or financial information to unsolicited callers or e-mails.
