LINCOLN – Lincoln Electric System asks customers to be on the alert for potential scams. Individuals posing as utility employees have been known to contact customers alleging they are delinquent on their electric bill. Scammers urge customers to supply their credit or debit card information or send payment via a nontraceable prepaid card.
LES reminds customers that it will not ask them for immediate bill payment or for their financial information through outbound phone calls or online, or cold call customers to sell additional services.
If you think you've been contacted by a scammer, do not give them any information and contact law enforcement immediately. To verify the status of your LES account, visit LES.com, call 402-475-4211 or visit LES at 1040 O St.
