HARRISON, Ark – The electric company, Entergy in Harrison is warning its customers about some phony phone calls going around the area.
Mark Martin, the Customer Service Manager for Entergy, says on Sunday his department got several reports of scammers, claiming to be Entergy bill collectors.
He says the actual collections department at Entergy will not call you for a seriously late payment, rather, they would physically show up to your place of business.
If this does happen to you, Martin recommends first you call 1-800-ENTERGY to report it and then call your local police department.
According to a recent report from the Federal Trade Commission, in 2014 “Imposter scams” were the third most common complaints, with over 276-thousand reports.
