WMECO warning customers of scam

Posted: Updated:

Western Massachusetts Electric Company is warning customers of a familiar scam, but this time the scammers are targeting Spanish-speaking customers.

WMECO told CBS 3 Springfield scammers are telling customers their power will be shut off unless they immediately make a payment.

The company said the scammers keep changing the scenario they use to scare customers.

Anyone who gets this call can verify it's WMECO by asking basic information that a customer service rep would have like an account number.
