The Shenandoah Valley Electric Cooperative is notifying customers to be aware of scam calls threatening to shut off power if a bill is not paid immediately.

SVEC said members could be speaking with a scammer if they ask for a certain type of payment, such as one or more debit cards.

As ordered by the State Corporation Commission, SVEC is not currently disconnecting service for non-payment due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

If a member has any questions on their account, they can call 1-800-234-7832 for more information.
