Recently, one of our members was contacted by someone claiming to be from Wheatland Electric. The caller informed the member that their bill was overdue and demanded payment over the phone. The member contacted our service office to verify the validity of the call. Wheatland Electric will never contact our members in this manner in an attempt to collect on a past due account.
Wheatland Electric encourages its members to always call their local service office directly to verify the authenticity of a caller requesting something out of the ordinary. Never provide personal information over the phone, internet or via email to any person or company without verifying the security and authenticity of the transaction.
