Amicalola EMC warns members to delete suspicious emails

A nationwide email scam is targeting utility customers, including electric cooperative members, by sending bogus invoices directing them to a virus-infected site.

The fraudulent billing message tells customers that their bill is ready and provides a link to view it. “Your latest Energy bill is now available to view online” the email reads , and that’s where the trouble begins.

Amicalola EMC gives members this warning: Ignore suspicious requests for personal information, such as bank account numbers, credit card numbers, and user names and passwords. Members are also advised to delete those emails.
