Quote "MLEC strives to provide the utmost fraud protection through significant security measures and public communication. We're committed to keeping our members safe and aware of any known threats." full width paragraph Here are some tips on how to protect yourself: DO NOT assume the name and number on your caller ID is legitimate. Caller IDs can be faked. NEVER share your personal information, including date of birth, Social Security number or banking account information. NEVER wire money to someone you don’t know. DO NOT click links or call numbers in unexpected emails or texts – especially those asking for your account information. MLEC, like most utilities, will NOT require their members to purchase prepaid debit cards or money orders to avoid an immediate disconnection. If you receive a call that sounds like it may be a scam, or you believe the call is a scam: hang up, call the police and report it to MLEC.
