Warren RECC are warning Edmonson County customers of an attempted phone scam.
Businesses in Butler and Warren Counties were targeted yesterday by a woman speaking in broken English and identifying herself as Lisa. She told them they will be disconnected in 30 minutes if they didn't pay over the phone with a credit card. Caller IDs list the same number, 866-790-5559.
WRECC Director of Communications Rick Carroll says it's a new attempt at an old game. "Warren RECC employees never call to obtain a payment over the phone," he said.
If you receive a phone call from someone claiming to be from WRECC requesting money or personal information, hang up and call them back directly at 270-842-6541 to report. As always, if something seems off or too good to be true, it probably is.
