-- GCEA MEMBER ALERT --
BEWARE OF TELEPHONE SCAMS
Gunnison County Electric Association (GCEA) is warning members about a utility scam. Recently, members have reported receiving phone calls from someone posing as a GCEA representative and stating that the members' electricity will be disconnected if they do not immediately pay a delinquent bill. The GCEA imposter is calling from an 800 number.
Although GCEA representatives may contact members with delinquent bills prior to disconnect, we would only contact you during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, and NEVER on weekends. GCEA's summer business hours are 7:30 am to 5:00 pm, Monday - Thursday, and 8:00 am to 4:30 pm on alternating Fridays.
We have alerted authorities about this telephone scam and they are aware of the situation. If you have any questions, or if you are contacted by an imposter claiming to represent GCEA, please call 970-641-3520 or 970-349-5385.
