Palmetto Electric warns customers of scheme

Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

Palmetto Electric is warning customers of a possible scheme. The company says since December, someone has been calling and telling customers that payment is needed immediately.

Officials say an electric provider will never ask for payment over the phone and turning off power takes more than just one phone call to the customer.

They say it appears Hispanics are being targeted. Folks who have received this call should contact Palmetto Electric right away.
