MGE's Message to Commercial and Industrial Customers Regarding Scam Activity
MGE shared the information below with local media yesterday regarding MGE business customers recently reporting they were contacted by phone by MGE for immediate payment of their bill.
Please read this information carefully and call our customer service number, 608-252-7222, if someone calls claiming to represent MGE and demanding immediate payment or personal information.
Our Customer Center has received dozens of calls already this week from customers who were targets of these scammers. The scammers contact a business customer and pose as a representative from MGE. They attempt to collect money by claiming accounts are past due. The scammers typically give instructions to pay with a prepaid debit card or wire transfer, and often threaten disconnection within the hour. These imposters continue to get more sophisticated as they are able to manipulate the caller ID to look like the call is coming from MGE or claim to know recent bill amounts.
