Please be aware: We have received reports of a scam caller claiming to represent Sussex Rural Electric Cooperative. This caller is telling members that they must pay their bill over the phone within 20 minutes or have their power shut off. The caller demanded to be provided with the member's credit card number over the phone.
DO NOT provide this or any caller with your credit card information. They are not co-op employees. SREC will never inform you of an overdue bill in this way or demand immediate payment over the phone. If you know a member who does not have social media and may be vulnerable to this type of scam, please let them know of the current threat.
