GA Power warns customers against scammers posing as employees

Posted: Updated:
(WTVM) -

Georgia Power is warning customers of scam artists who are impersonating the company's employees.

According to Georgia Power the scam artists have been known to call customers--claiming their account is past due and their electricity will be disconnected if they do not provide an immediate payment.

Senior citizens and those who speak English as a second language are the most frequently targeted.

When a Georgia Power customer is past due on their account, the company will contact them by calling their primary account telephone number with a prerecorded message requesting that they phone Georgia Power to discuss the status of their account.

Georgia Power does not ask for personal information like a credit card or social security number over the phone. 

Customers who have concerns or questions about a phone call or other contact regarding their Georgia Power account should call the company's 24-hour customer service line at (888) 660-5890.

Customers can also visit GeorgiaPower.com to send an email directly to Customer Service or visit a local Georgia Power business office.
