Members Beware

Members continue to report being targeted with a telephone scam involving buying a MoneyPack. An individual pretending to be from Aiken Electric calls and tells the member that their service will be disconnected unless payment is made right away. Even when the member says they paid, the scammer reports that the co-op billing system did not process their payment and they need to make another payment by purchasing a Money Pack, call the number provided by the scammer and give the receipt and access numbers. The scammer then has access to the Money Pack account and takes the money.

Aiken Electric NEVER asks members to buy a Money Pack and members ALWAYS receive several notices prior to disconnection. If you are contacted with a threat of disconnection and suspect it may be a scam, call the co- op to verify and, also, report any suspicious activity to local law enforcement. Thank you.

The blessings of Operation Round Up

Would you really miss $6? That’s the average yearly cost of participating in our Operation Round Up program where your electric bill is rounded up to the nearest dollar. Our members who participate in the program let a small amount of pocket change result in big changes for those who have fallen on misfortune in our communities. Operation Round Up funds are managed by a committee who reviews applications from families who have lost everything to a fire or individuals who cannot afford life-saving treatments for a terminal disease. Here are just a couple of thank you notes we have received from recipients of the program.

“Dear Round Up Committee, Thank you for your recent blessing to our friend, Mary. She has started her chemotherapy treatments and she is so encouraged. You “loosened the cords” of injustice for this lady and kept her from being denied medical treatment due to her lack of finances. We thank you.”

“I searched high and low for a card to express my heartfelt gratitude for what you all have done for my daughter and grandchildren, but it seems nothing ever comes close to the way I feel. Thank you does not seem to be the right words to even express my feelings. You all have restored my faith in mankind, just knowing there are still some good people left in this world.”

During this upcoming season of giving, please consider letting one of our Member Service Representatives sign you up for the cooperative’s most meaningful program, Operation Round Up.
