(COLUMBUS, Miss.) (WCBI)  4- County Electric Power is warning customers about a phone scam surfacing in the area.

   General manager Joe Cade says callers are contacting customers saying they have qualified for a federal grant to help pay utility bills.   In some cases victims are asked to provide credit card information to a firm called Paymentus. Once thieves get that information, customer checking accounts are hit with unauthorized charges

.   Cade adds 4-County does not seek personal financial information over the phone.  The scam artists have also used the name of other utility companies as part of the scheme.
