MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison Gas and Electric (MGE) warned about a new scam targeting its customers over the weekend.
The power company said its customers have reported an increase in a phone call scam. The scammers claim service will be disconnected if the person targeted does not pay their bill immediately.
"If MGE customers receive a call like this, this is not MGE," a corporate statement issued Saturday said. "This is not how MGE does business, and we are not disconnecting customers at this time."
The company provides information on how to spot and avoid scams on its website.
