Steps We’re Taking

Beware of Scammers!

Emergencies and unprecedented events offer opportunities for scammers to launch fraudulent campaigns that feed off the climate of concern. Specifically, scammers are taking advantage of the COVID-19 outbreak to send fraudulent emails, texts, etc.

Beware of scams asking for personal information or immediate payment, and NEVER click on a suspicious link or attachment.

We want to make sure our members know that we do not sell or endorse door-to-door sales. If the knock at your door says they are partnered with or represent MVEA, call us at (800) 388-9881 to verify. We do not need to enter your home or need pictures of your billing information. Please send the person at your door away if you have any doubts.

Here are some helpful tips:

  • Don’t click on links from sources you don’t know or that look suspicious.
  • Watch for emails claiming to be from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or experts saying they have information about the virus.
  • Do your homework when it comes to donations, whether through charities or crowdfunding sites.
