One Tri-State electric company is warning customers of yet another way thieves are trying to rip you off.

Kenergy officials say within the last two days they've received numerous amounts of members reporting phone scams.

The scammers are posing as Kenergy employees demanding payment and threatening to turn off power on the spot.

Kenergy officials say this will never be the case.

"We will never demand payment over the phone," says Leslie Barr, Kenergy Spokesperson. "We will never threaten disconnect. We are here to help you. So if you are behind on a bill, you're struggling to make a payment, we will work with you so we will never make those demands or shut-offs."

Phone scams similar to these were very common at the start of the pandemic with many senior citizens reporting they received calls.

Officials say if the call seems suspicious, hang up and call Kenergy at 800-844-4832.

After what was our coldest start today since January 8th, temperatures only climbed as high as 25° in Evansville earlier today, marking our coolest afternoon in just under two weeks. The evening ahead will be equally bone-chilling; after seeing temperatures around 21° at dinnertime we'll tumble back down to 19° by 10 o’clock under gradually decreasing cloud cover. The combination of clear skies and northerly winds will allow temperatures to fall all the way back down to 15° in Evansville early Friday morning. Worse yet, windchill values are expected to dive right back down into the single digits area-wide.
