Entergy Arkansas is warning people not to become victims of scam calls about paying their electric bills.
“Entergy Arkansas has received many reports from customers who are getting calls from scammers claiming to be with Entergy and threatening to disconnect customers if they don’t pay immediately,” according to a news release. “As a reminder, we don’t call customers and make such threats.”
People shouldn’t give their personal information to strangers.
“No matter how legit the caller ID looks or how aggressive the scammer is, hang up and call 1-800-ENTERGY (1-800-368-3749) to speak directly with an Entergy representative. You should also alert your local law enforcement agency.”
