AEP warning customers of possible phone scam

American Electric Power is warning their customers of possible scam calls coming into the Crossroads area.

AEP has received reports of scam calls made in the Abilene and Corpus Christi areas and believe those same scammers plan to make calls in the Crossroads.

The scammers are targeting local businesses and customers, threatening to shut off their power, unless an immediate payment is made.

The scammers are asking for payments in pre-paid debit or credit cards.

If you believe you have been a victim of this scam, contact your local authorities and AEP Texas for assistance.
