Alectra Utilities is warning customers about several new phone, text and letter scams targeting clients in its service territory.
The power company says the phone scheme involves a scammer who claims to be an Alectra Utilities technician demanding payment and threatening to remove the Smart Meter.

The text scam involves messages being sent to customers offering a refund from the utility, while the letter mail scam involves letters sent to customers advising of an outstanding amount owed for a Smart Meter deposit.
Alectra Utilities says if any of its customers receive suspicious phone calls, texts or letters, contact customer service or your local police department.
