Don’t Fall Prey to Scammers

Crises bring out the best in some people and the worst in others.

Don’t fall prey to those who will try to take advantage of these unusual times.

Although we do provide pre-recorded courtesy reminders and alerts to help you manage your electric bill, we will never call you demanding payment to avoid disconnecting your electric service. If you receive a call demanding payment by a credit card, prepaid card, a money wire or any other method, hang up!

If you’re not sure, call us at 770-267-2505.

You can’t trust caller ID these days. Criminals use computers to change the phone number you see on the caller ID display.

WALTON EMC WILL NEVER:

  • Call and threaten you with immediate disconnect.
  • Ask you to pay with a prepaid card (like “Green Dot” or “Bluebird” cards).
  • Ask you to pay by wiring money.
  • Ask you to pay with a gift card.
