Ameren Update (11-16-16)

We have recently have been made aware of a scam in our area that threatens immediate disconnection of utility service unless a payment is made from a pre-paid debit card. In this scam, a customer receives an unsolicited phone call from an individual who 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 timeframe. 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.

Red flags for scam activity

  • The thief becomes angry and tells the customer his or her account is past due and service will be disconnected if a large payment isn’t made – usually within less than an hour.
  • The thief instructs the customer to purchase a pre-paid debit or credit card – widely available at retail stores – then call him or her back to supposedly make a payment to Ameren.
  • The scammer asks the customer for the pre-paid card’s receipt number and PIN number, which grants instant access to the card’s funds.

How to protect yourself

  • Ameren never asks or requires a customer with a delinquent account to purchase a pre-paid debit card to avoid disconnection.
  • Customers can make payments online, by phone, electronic check, mail or at pay in person locations.
  • Customers with delinquent accounts receive an advance disconnection notification by mail with the regular monthly billing and by phone several days in advance – never a single notification hours before disconnection.
  • If you suspect someone is impersonating an Ameren employee, end the conversation and immediately call Ameren Missouri at 1.800.552.7583. Customers should also follow Ameren on social media to receive the latest updates on scams.
