Utility Phone Scams in Northeast Wisconsin

Phone Scam Warning

In this recent case, a caller claiming to be from WE Energies contacted a customer and demanded immediate cash payment to avoid disconnection. The caller indicated that the disconnection was irreversible unless cash was immediately provided. Upon checking with WE Energies, this certainly is NOT them making the calls.

If you receive this call and would like more tips or to file a complaint, visit the Consumer Protection Bureau at datcp.wisconsin.gov or call (800) 422-7128.

Reminder OEC Members: If you get a call that sounds suspicious, hang up immediately and call us at 1-800-472-8410.
