BEC warns customers of scam

From our News Partners at WCBD-TV:

According to Berkeley Electric Cooperative's website, customers in the Cross area have been targeted by scammers. People claiming to work for the co-op are going house to house telling BEC customers their meter base is damaged and needs to be repaired before power can be restored. The scammers then offers to repair the damage for a fee.

BEC reminds customers that employees never take payments in the field.  If you're approached by a scammer, BEC asks that you contact the cooperative immediately.
