Maui Electric Company (MECO) is warning customers of a scam involving individuals posing as MECO employees. The Electric Utility impersonators have reportedly been contacting businesses by telephone and asking for personal information. The fake inspectors have also been making false claims that a customers’ bill is overdue and must be paid or service will be disconnected.

Officials at MECO say customers should not provide personal, confidential, or financial information to any unidentified individual. Customers are urged to be cautious when responding to phone calls. Suspicious activity should be reported to MECO or directly to the Maui Police Department.

Questions or concerns can be directed to the MECO Customer Service Desk at 871-9777 on Maui and 1-877-871-8461 on Molokai and Lanai.
