New scam aimed at EMC consumers

While there have not been any reports of this particular scam, Habersham Electric Membership Corporation (HEMC) members should be on guard for the latest ploy to obtain quick cash and personal information such as credit card and social security numbers.

“Be aware of callers claiming they are with Habersham EMC and demanding immediate payment or threatening immediate disconnection,” says Susan Baker with Habersham EMC.

Habersham EMC has been notified that some members have received telephone calls stating their power would be disconnected immediately unless they provided a credit card number or went to a location, other than an HEMC office, to make a payment.
