Xcel Energy Warning Residents About New Scam

Another scam has hit West Texas and this one involves Xcel Energy.

Scammers are calling people claiming to be with the company.

They tell people that their power is about to be disconnected because they're behind on their bills and offer to take payment over the phone.

If you get a call like this, don’t fall for it.

Instead, hang up and call 1-800-895-4999 and be sure to check your account.

Officials say customers behind on their bills will get a letter in the mail first.
