NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Metro police say over the past two days scammers have ramped up calling Nashville Electric Service (NES) business and commercial customers.
The callers reportedly demand a payment using a prepaid card or be disconnected from service.
Police want to note that NES does not call customers for payment to avoid being disconnected.
The scam surfaces about every 6 months or so, according to authorities, and will last for a few days before moving on.
Anyone with questions about their service or bill should call NES directly.
