Tri-County Electric advises members of possible scams

With the arrival of each new year it seems we hear of a new approach someone has used to take advantage of unsuspecting Tri-County Electric member-owners.

Tri-County Electric reminds its member-owners that regardless of anything you may be told:

• Tri-County Electric will not contact you asking for personal information and we recommend that you contact your local law enforcement agency regarding any solicitation requesting personal information.

• Contact your local Tri-County Electric office and law enforcement if anyone claiming to represent Tri-County Electric comes to your home asking for payment for any reason.

• Any Tri-County Electric employee who has a reason to come to your home will be wearing company identified clothing and driving a vehicle with the Tri-County Electric logo.  If the person does not have on a Tri-County Electric shirt and/or is not driving a marked vehicle, you should stay inside your home and contact your local Tri-County Electric office immediately.

Please be aware and alert regarding potential scams. It is ALWAYS better to be safe than sorry!
