Neb Public Power District warns of scam attempts

NPPD Cooper Nuclear Station

(KLZA)-- The Nebraska Public Power District reports customers of the utility in Southeast Nebraska have been targeted by scammers. 

Phone calls are being made to NPPD customers indicating that NPPD is demanding payment for an overdue electric bill and that it must be paid immediately or the residence or business will have their power disconnected. The caller-ID may also indicate the call is coming from the Cooper Nuclear Station which is owned by NPPD. 

NPPD notes in a news release the company does not call customers demanding payment. Notifications are sent by letter.
Cooper Nuclear Station does no collection of electric bills. 
Most electric customers in Southeast Nebraska receive their bills from The Auburn Board of Public Works, Nebraska City Utilities or Omaha Public Power District.  NPPD also does not have customers in Missouri.

Any customeers that receive such a call should not attempt to make a payment and should contact local law enforcement and NPPD's Centralized Customer Care Center at toll free 1-877-ASK-NPPD, that is 1-877- 275-6773 to report the request or to their local utility providing them with a monthly bill.
