St. Louis County Police sounding another scam alert.
This time, criminals are targeting Ameren customers. The thieves are calling customers and demanding payment of their bill or they could have their power disconnected. The criminals insist on payment by a Green Dot MoneyPak card. Police say this is tricky, because as soon as you give a thief the PIN number on the card, your money is gone.
Ameren wants to remind customers, they will never demand payment over phone and do not ask for personal information such as a Social Security or bank account number.
If you suspect someone is impersonating an Ameren Missouri employee, end the conversation and immediately call Ameren Missouri, 1.800.552.7583.
