Home » Newsroom »   Electric Bill Payment Scam
All SLEMCO customers should be warned that a new scam is claiming that President Obama or the U.S. government is providing credits to pay your electric bill. SLEMCO customers have been contacted through fliers, social media and text messages. Scammers then request the consumers’ social security number and bank routing number in exchange for giving the SLEMCO customer a phony bank routing number that will supposedly pay their SLEMCO bill. This is not true and can result in late fees or disconnected services because your bill is not being paid. Further, it gives the scammers access to sensitive personal information that can lead to identity theft and fraud. If you have any questions concerning your SLEMCO bill and whether or not it has been paid, contact the SLEMCO billing department at 337-896-5200.
