SCAM ALERT::: Don’t Let Scam Artists Ruin Your Holiday Season!


 Attention All Ameren Missouri Customers:

 Don’t Let Scam Artists Ruin Your Holiday Season!

 Thieves have been calling some of our customers and demanding payment of their electric bill over the phone or risk disconnection.  Often, they’ll insist on payment by a Green Dot MoneyPak card.  Don’t fall for this scheme.  Once you give a thief the Personal Information Number (PIN) from the card, your money is gone.

 §  Ameren Missouri representatives never call to demand payment.  We never ask for personal information – such as Social Security number or account number – over the phone.

§  Never give your credit card, debit card, Social Security, ATM, checking or saving account numbers to anyone who calls or sends an email requesting this information.

§  Never allow anyone into your business who wants to check your electrical wiring, natural gas pipes or appliances unless you have scheduled an appointment or have reported a natural gas leak and the person has proper identification.

§  Ameren Missouri employees always carry photo identification, which includes name, employee number and an official Ameren Missouri logo.

If you suspect someone is impersonating an Ameren Missouri employee, end the conversation and immediately call Ameren Missouri, 1.800.552.7583.

 This communication was sent on behalf of Ameren Missouri.

 Please feel free to pass this communication on to other interested parties, especially to the elderly and to those who do not have internet access.
