Carroll EMC Warns Of Potential Utility Scammers

Carrollton, GA—Carroll Electric Membership Cooperative urges Members to be on guard for scammers claiming to be your electric cooperative. As many electric co-ops resume utility disconnections, consumer-Members are increasingly being targeted by utility scammers – particularly scammers who are threatening immediate disconnection, knowing many Members have past-due accounts due to COVID-19 hardships.

Phone scammers are known to demand immediate payment over the phone and threaten to disconnect your electric service among other tactics. Members should never provide banking or credit card information or any other form of payment to the caller or texter.

Give Carroll EMC a call at 770-832-3552 if you have questions about your account or payments.

The co-op serves Members in Carroll, Haralson, Heard, Paulding, Polk, Floyd and Troup counties. This institution is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
