LITTLE ROCK, AR - A warning tonight from the Arkansas Attorney General office about a scam.
In this scheme reported by First Electric Cooperative, con artists pose as utility representatives. Customers receive calls from someone claiming to represent the cooperative. The caller offers a discount on electirc bills if the consumer agrees to sign up for an automatic bank-draft program over the phone.
Of course to sign up, the customers must give out bank account information to the caller.
