A customer of a Rural Public Power District in Nebraska received a phone call from an unknown source about their electric bill. The person calling told this customer they were with the electric company and needed collect the past due amount or they would be disconnected. The caller then asked for the customer’s credit card number. Luckily, this customer hung up and called the electric company directly!
