Don’t fall victim to scams!

Unfortunately, in today’s world, scams are inevitable. Scammers can threaten you with everything from legal action involving the IRS to turning off power to your home.
Utility scams often involve an individual or group posing as an employee of your utility company. The scammer may use threatening language in order to frighten you into offering your credit card or bank account information. Don’t fall victim to these types of scams. If someone calls your home or cell phone demanding you pay your electric bill, hang up immediately. If you have any doubts about your utility bill, contact our member payment center at 706-253-5200.
Amicalola EMC will never ask you to provide personal financial information over the phone. In fact, to comply with stricter payment card industry guidelines, Amicalola EMC stopped accepting verbal credit card numbers over the phone in 2018. Members can pay their bill using a credit card, but must do it using the automated telephone system or through the bill paying option on the website.
Amicalola EMC wants to make sure you avoid any and all types of scams that could put you or your financial information in jeopardy.
