Member Alert!!!

Article was added on Thursday, January 30, 2014

Santee Electric Cooperative, Inc. does not call members asking for account information or payments. We recently received questions from members about why they had received calls telling them to pay their account by phone. We simply must assume this is a scam and would like to advise all our members to be on the look out!

If you are contacted by anyone claiming to be from Santee Electric Co-op, tell them we do not contact our members by phone and call your local police. Do not give them any personal information. Be especially protective of your social security number, bank and credit card numbers and driver's license number.

Legitimate companies will not call, email or go door to door asking for your account number or password, so keep your account information to yourself. You should also not assume that you can trust caller ID to let you know where a caller is located. Because scammers may use Internet calling technology, the area code you see may not reflect where they really are.

Co-op members should be aware and know that these phone calls are not valid.

Please call 1-800-922-1604 with any questions and warn neighbors, friends and relatives who may be susceptible to these types of scams.
