Recently, KVOE News told you about the latest version of scams affecting Westar Energy customers. Apparently, scammers are branching out.
The Morris County Sheriff's Office says Flint Hills Rural Electric Cooperative has been contacted by members who say calls from alleged representatives from both Flint Hills and Westar have told them to pay a certain amount of money or else their power will be shut off in 30 minutes.
This comes with more reports of Westar-related scam calls in Chase County after a company-wide alert about potential scammers just after Valentine's Day.
If you get a suspicious call, don't engage the caller. Instead, check your records and contact your energy company if you have questions.
