Cuidado con los estafadores durante el verano

Seguramente te has enterado de impostores que llaman para exigir a miembros de Magic Valley que hagan un pago de inmediato para evitar desconexión de su servicio eléctrico.

Los estafadores no toman vacaciones durante el verano y varios miembros de MVEC son testigos de eso. Tenemos varios reportes de llamadas de estafadores en las últimas semanas, incluyendo una llamada donde los estafadores dicen que la lectura del medidor es incorrecta y otra que un cheque no tenia fondos.

Hace poco recibimos un mensaje privado en nuestra página de Facebook de un miembro de MVEC que nos dijo: “Acabo de recibir una llamada de alguien que dice ser de Magic Valley y me informa que mi luz será desconectada hoy y quería mi número de cuenta; no se lo di, porque ella debería haber tenido esta información. Me suena que es una llamada de FRAUDE”

¡Es una estafa! Magic Valley nunca hace este tipo de llamadas, ni desconectamos la electricidad fuera del horario de oficina, ni los fines de semana. Si un miembro no paga su factura en la fecha de vencimiento, MVEC enviará un aviso de desconexión por correo al domicilio, con la fecha de desconexión en el aviso.

“Si recibes una llamada de alguien que dice ser de Magic Valley, no le des ninguna información personal o financiera. ¡En lugar de eso, cuelga y llama a la policía local y a Magic Valley de inmediato!” Recomienda Luis Reyes, Gerente de Comunicaciones de MVEC. “Magic Valley nunca solicitará una tarjeta prepagada para pagar tu factura; eso es lo que muchos estafadores solicitan en las llamadas.”
