Don't Be Spoofed

Calling and asking for personal and financial information is a common tactic used by scammers. It’s important to always be cautious and not share any sensitive information with unknown callers. If you receive such calls, consider taking the following steps:


Don’t Share Personal Information: Avoid providing personal or financial information over the phone. MWEC will never call requesting credit/debit card or banking information.

Question your Caller ID: Be cautious if the caller’s number is hidden or if the caller ID seems suspicious. Scammers often use techniques like caller ID spoofing to appear as if they’re calling from a trusted source.

Report Scams: If you receive a call from a claimed MWEC sourced that you believe to be a scam, report it to your local authorities and your local MWEC office.



Block and Ignore: Consider blocking the number if you receive repeated scam calls from the same source. Ignore calls from unknown numbers and let them go to voicemail.

Educate Yourself: Stay informed about common scams and tactics used by scammers. Awareness can help you recognize potential threats.

Don’t be spoofed. If you’re uncertain about a call’s legitimacy, hang up and call Mountrail-Williams Electric Cooperative directly at 1.800.279.2667.
