FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Power companies across the region want you to beware of scams going around.
Indiana Michigan Power said the scammers are calling customers demanding payment before getting disconnected.
Some customers were even told to call a different number to pay their bill.
I&M said it never calls customers asking for payment, and it will send customers a written warning before disconnecting electricity.
"It really is a shame that people will try dishonest means to get money from people and we think it's really unfortunate," said I&M spokesman Tracey Warner.
Steuben REMC is also warning customers of a similar scam.
If you get one of these calls, call police and your electric company to report the scam.
