Lincoln Electric System warns customers of potential scams

Lincoln Electric System is asking customers to beware of potential scams.

According to a news release, LES has received reports of a scam in which a caller, posing as an LES employee, contacted customers alleging they were delinquent on their electric bill and demanding payment immediately.

LES is reminding customers they do NOT collect payments from customers in person at their homes or businesses, or call customers requesting immediate payment.

If you think you’ve been contacted by a scammer, do not give them any information and call the attorney general’s office. If you did provide information, please call the police department’s non-emergency telephone number.

You can also call 402-475-4211 or visit LES’ downtown office at 1040 O Street, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
