Victoria police warn community about AEP scam calls

The Victoria Police Department released the following statement warning the community about a scam call where individuals pretend to be AEP representatives.

“The Victoria Police Department has received numerous calls concerning individuals pretending to be AEP. In fact, our own Records division received the same SCAM call. The individuals are either asking for the billing department in reference to a bill, or advised the “customer” to call 877-579-2499 to make a claim concerning their meters. Please be advised that AEP will NOT contact you directly and your Retail Electric Provider (REP) will be your point of contact.”
