VEA Cautions Members About Scam

Local businesses and residential members are receiving phone calls after business hours and on weekends from individuals posing as VEA employees. The callers demand immediate payment and threaten to turn off the members’ power. They also ask members to purchase prepaid credit cards and wait for instructions.
 
These individuals are not associated with the cooperative. VEA never calls members after business hours or on weekends to discuss bills. If you receive such a call, DO NOT provide personal information over the phone, including social security numbers, credit card numbers, birth dates and account numbers. Instead, hang up immediately and contact Nye County Sheriff’s Detective Sargent Mike Eisenloel at 775-751-7000 and meisenloel@co.nye.nv.us or Detective Corey Fowles at cfowles@co.nye.nv.us.
 
VEA also urges members to call the VEA main office at (775) 727-5312.
