Tri-County Electric warns members of scam


February 3, 2014

Tri-County Electric members in Macon and Trousdale counties in Tennessee called their local office to report phone calls received stating they owed money on a bill and power would be cut off if the bill was not paid.

The members were able to identify the caller through caller ID and reported the same number (615) 732-8210 to Tri-County Electric. The recording states that you have reached Nashville Electric Service, but does not appear to be a valid phone number.

No one from Tri-County Electric will contact you asking for payment or for any personal information and we recommend that you contact your local law enforcement agency regarding any solicitation requesting personal information.

Again, please be aware and alert regarding potential scams. It is ALWAYS better to be safe than sorry! Tri-County Electric, “owned and operated by those we serve.”
