York Electric Cooperative is alerting members to an apparent scam involving individuals calling members, posing as a representative of the co-op. The scam caller states that immediate payment is needed to avoid disconnection of electric service.
Members should call YEC at (803) 684-4248 if they have questions about their account or to report if they receive a suspicious call. Member services representatives can help confirm payment and balance due on a member’s account.
Credit card numbers and personal information should never be given to suspicious callers. If you receive a suspicious call, mailing, email or other type of unusual contact, you should contact local law enforcement.
