Protect Yourself from Scammers

Dec 10, 2020 | Scams

Scammers can threaten you with everything from shutting off power to your home to legal action. Don’t fall victim to these types of scams. Meeker Cooperative would like to remind you of ways to avoid scams.

Co-op employees will never show up at your door to demand payment.

Never give personal information to an unknown caller or visitor. Co-op representatives have access to the details they need to service your account.

Demands for immediate payment by wire transfer, cryptocurrency, gift cards or cash reload cards should immediately raise red flags. If you think you’ve been contacted by a scammer falsely representing the co-op, please call 320-693-3231 and let us know as soon as possible.
