If you receive an unsolicited call that threatens immediate disconnection of utility service unless a payment is made from a pre-paid debit card, this is a scam. In these calls, an individual falsely claims to be an Ameren representative. The scammer warns that Ameren will disconnect the customer’s electric service if the customer fails to make a payment – usually within a short time-frame. Scammers have even duplicated the Ameren Interactive Voice Response system, so when customers call back phone numbers provided by the scammer, it sounds like a legitimate Ameren phone number. Some of these criminals also use caller ID spoofing to replicate Ameren’s customer service number.
