Beware past-due electric bill scamFree Access

Kentucky Power is warning residents to beware of scam callers who are threatening to turn off people’s electricity if they do not pay immediately.
The company issued the warning on its bill-pay web site.
Letcher County Sheriff Mickey Stines said he was unaware of any complaints here.
Kentucky Power said thieves are calling and threatening an immediate cut-off unless the customer buys a pre-paid debit card and sends it to the caller.
“Kentucky Power never asks for pre-paid debit cards for payment. Please use our authorized payment methods, and call us at 800-572-1113 if you have questions or concerns,” the company says in a notice on its web page.
