IMPORTANT NOTICE - SCAM ALERT
Tara Energy is warning customers of an ongoing scam. Fraudulent callers, claiming to be Tara Energy employees, are contacting customers claiming their account is delinquent and facing disconnection unless immediate payment is made via a prepaid cash card, such as Green Dot. To add credibility to the con, the callers often use spoofing technology that enables caller ID to display the name and number of the energy company. All customers should be on guard against these deceptive acts.
- Remember that anyone who has the number on a Green Dot card has access to the funds on the card.
- While Tara Energy may contact customers regarding an outstanding balance, Tara Energy will never demand immediate payment by a prepaid cash card.
- A past-due notification will always be sent on an outstanding balance.
- Customers should never arrange payment or divulge account or personal information over the telephone unless they are certain they are speaking to a Tara Energy representative.
Anyone targeted by this scheme should not make payment. Contact local police to report the incident, and call Tara Energy with any account questions.
