Ameren Warns Customers of Scams

Ameren customers should be aware of telephone, mail, email, door-to-door, and other in-person scams that involve criminals posing as Ameren representatives and demanding immediate payment or personal information.
     
Scammers are:
    
scam-poser
 surprise-alert
 credit-card
Impersonating Ameren
representatives (over the phone
and in-person), targeting vulnerable demographics such as senior citizens and non-native English-speaking persons.
 Using advanced tactics, such as playing a telephone recording
that sounds like Ameren's
phone system message or displaying Ameren's name or
logo in person.
 Threatening to disconnect or suspend utility service if 
immediate payment is not received.
 

    
utilities-united
 Ameren has joined nearly 100 utilities nationwide to raise awareness of scam tactics and educate customers before they become victims. In coordination with this effort, the third Wednesday in November has been designated as Utilities United Against Scams Day.
