Citizens Electric Corporation Warns Members Of Scam

Recently, Citizens Electric (CEC) business members have been targeted.

Here are a few tips to identify a scam:

  • The call claims to be from Ameren or a utility other than CEC.
  • There is an unusual sense of urgency
  • Payment is requested immediately
  • The call back number is not 877-876-3511
  • The call back number does not match the utility when typed into an internet search engine
  • There is an alternative method of payment requested.

When you receive a call similar to this, please contact CEC and your local police department with the call back number provided.

If you are unsure if it is a scam, hang up and call CEC at 877-876-3511 to speak with a member services representative.
