Dairyland Power Cooperative is advising area residents to be alert for scammers claiming to work for the company.
The scammers are using a method called "Spoofing" which fraudulently changes the caller ID making in appear that a legitimate call is coming from Dairyland Power Cooperative. The scammers are reportedly conducting credit card fraud and are attempting to collect personal and financial information from their victims.
Dairyland says it would never call a customer or area resident requesting personal or financial information for any reason.
If you receive a suspicious call from someone claiming to be with Dairyland, disconnect the call immediately.
