Warren RECC says scammers targeting Hispanic customers

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – The Warren Rural Electric Cooperative Corporation, or WRECC, is warning of a new scam targeting the company’s Hispanic customers.

According to a tweet sent out by the company, scammers are targeting the Hispanic community as they are providing translators during the call.

Scammers are telling members they are behind on their electric bills and must make a payment immediately.

Warren RECC employees will never contact customers requesting payment over the phone.

If you receive such a call, do not give out any personal or financial information.

Anyone who receives one of these calls is asked to report the call to a local law enforcement agency or any Warren RECC office.
