According to Curtis Belcher, the marketing coordinator for Central New Mexico Electric Co-op, locals should be on the lookout for a scam involving the company.
The Independent was among the calls received by the electric utility to report a caller claiming that the company’s electricity will be disconnected for non-payment.
According to Belcher, the cooperative is reporting all such calls to the Attorney General’s office and is requesting that anyone who receives such a call get in touch with CNMEC at 505-832-4483.
Belcher said, “We won’t call and demand payment. The utility’s new payment system no longer permits payment by phone directly with a customer service representative.”We may call to remind you that your payment is past due, but we won’t request payment or credit card information.”
These collection calls are recorded on a co-op member’s account and are verifiable, according to Belcher.
