Day Two of Reporting on Incidents happening across our state…

NASHVILLE, Tenn. The Nashville Electric Service has issued a warning to its customers about a possible multi-state scam.

In a release on Tuesday, NES officials said that they have been notified of a scam directed at utility customers. Officials said that scammers ask customers for personal information, such as Social Security numbers and then tell the customers they’ve been approved for special funding that will foot their bill.

According to officials victims of the scam have been reported in California, Illinois, Tennessee, Texas and Florida.

“Although we are not aware of any NES customers who have been contacted by this scam, we want to make our customers aware of potential issues so they can protect themselves from becoming victims of identity theft and fraudulent activities,” said Teresa Corlew, NES VP & Chief Customer Care Officer.

NES said that employees of NES never ask customers for personal information such as bank accounts or social security numbers.

The Nashville Electric Service warned customers to be vigilant about protecting their personal information. Anyone with questions about the scam should contact NES Customer Relations at (615) 736-6900.

Let’s hope that these incidents end soon… some elderly have to choose between tv and medications…they have no idea.
