Indiana Michigan Power is warning area customers of a scam going around.

They say scammers are pretending to be employees with I&M, calling customers and claiming they are late paying their electric bill. They’ll then threaten to shut off your power if you don’t call a different number to make a payment, and might even ask for bank account or debit card information.

I&M reminds customers that they’ve suspended disconnects to help those who are struggling to make payments during the pandemic, and they would never call a customer and demand an immediate payment.
