Phone Scams Getting More Sophisticated
Wheatland Electric would like our members to be aware of scammers who have attempted to defraud Wheatland Electric members by trying to collect funds over the phone. These scams have happened in the past, but the scammers are getting more sophisticated.
We have had reports in the Great Bend area of people contacting members and claiming to be from Wheatland Electric. They are instructed to call 1-877-556-5054 and enter a PIN. The message you hear when you call the number says you have reached Wheatland Electric and asks you to enter a PIN. This is NOT Wheatland Electric's number. Wheatland Electric does not call to solicit payments. If you ever have a question on any communication claiming to be from Wheatland, please call your local office and verify its validity.
