URGENT ALERT! ANEC Phone Scammers!
 
Posted on Tuesday December 05, 2017
 
The town offices were just notified that Gourmet Alley received a phone call this morning (Tuesday, December 5) stating that they were with ANEC.  The caller threatened to turn off the electricity if they didn't pay $1,000 within 45 minutes.  They were instructed to go to Food Lion to purchase two $500 gift cards.  The callers were very specific about which payment card to purchase.

Gourmet Alley contacted ANEC and were told that ANEC would never do this.  ANEC contacts their customers with a recorded phone message then will send a paper notification.

Please be aware of the increase in scam calls, especially during the holiday season.  This particular call hit very close to home with the caller saying they were from ANEC.  

If you receive a scam phone call, please contact the Northampton County Sheriff's Office at 757-678-0458 to report the call.  The Sheriff's office will contact the appropriate agency.
