MidAmerican warns customers of scam


MidAmerican wants customers to be aware of scammers posing as employees and demanding payment. 

Customers this past week have reported an uptick in threatening calls from people posing as midamerican energy employees.

They’re demanding immediate payment for bills they claim are past due.

The callers threaten to shut off power unless the customer pays immediately by phone with a pre-paid debit card. 

MidAmerican warns scammers are spoofing their number so it appears legitimate.
