El Paso Electric Warns Customers of Scam

June 08, 2010

In recent weeks El Paso Electric has learned that individuals claiming to work with El Paso Electric and a program called Año Completo have contacted some of our customers. These individuals have asked our customers to send them cash or a money order in an amount equal to half their electric bills for the past 12 months. In exchange for this cash payment, they claim that the customers would receive a discount, and their electric bills for the next 12 months would be paid in full.

El Paso Electric does not operate such a program and is in no way affiliated with Año Completo. Further, EPE employees do not solicit money over the phone. El Paso Electric has alerted the El Paso Police Department about this scam and advises customers who have received a telephone call from and/or have sent funds to Año Completo to contact Detective Stanley Hayes with the El Paso Police Department by telephone at 915-564-7133 or by e-mail at hayess@elpasotexas.gov.
