The Jackson Purchase Energy Cooperative is warning its members about a telemarketing scam offering bogus payment of energy bills.

Co-op members are being told that their bills will be paid with funds from a special federal program, but it requires the member’s personal information such as their social security number.

Similar bill payment scams are currently being investigated in Mississippi, North Carolina, and Arizona. Co-op members are urged to contact local energy suppliers if they receive phone requests for personal information.
