OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – An Oklahoma electric company is warning its customers about a scam involving your electric meter at home.
Officials with the Oklahoma Electric Cooperative say scammers are calling people and saying their meter needs to be replaced because it’s a fire hazard.
After telling you about the dangers, the scammers then say you are required to pay $500 for the new meter.
However, the Oklahoma Electric Cooperative is warning customers to not fall for the trick.
The OEC says its meters are not a fire hazard, adding they would never call you and demand money for a replacement.
