Scam alert written on a cell phoneScam Alert

Tampa Electric is cautioning about a new scam whereby customers receive a call claiming their account is past due with instructions to buy a money order or a prepaid debit card from a local drug store – usually within 30 to 60 minutes – and call back with the card’s number to avoid disconnection. Note that TECO always will verify your account and never will require payment in this manner.
