Vectren warns of bill scam

Posted: Updated:
EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

Vectren is warning customers of a multi-state bill payment scam.

As part of the scam, customers receive an unsolicited phone call from a person claiming to be a Vectren representative.

The caller warns that a technician will disconnect the customer's energy service if the customer fails to make an immediate payment usually within a half hour.

Customers are instructed to purchase a prepaid debit card and call back to make a payment toward the bill.

Vectren officials say they do not require customers to purchase a prepaid debit or credit card in order to make a payment of any type.
