Dixie Electric is warning the public about two individuals posing as employees.
Dixie Electric issued the following statement Tuesday:
Over the past week, there have been reports of two white males in a silver van approaching residences in Jones County and telling homeowners that they are from Dixie Electric and need to check the meter. These two individuals are not representing Dixie Electric.
Dixie Electric personnel are easy to identify because they have company issued identification cards, wear clothing with Dixie Electric’s logo or are in clearly marked Dixie Electric vehicles.
Dixie Electric no longer has meter readers, so if someone comes to check your meter, it will be a serviceman, wearing logo clothing and in a truck with the Dixie Electric logo on the doors.
If an individual approaches your residence and does not have some type of Dixie Electric identification, please call your local law enforcement officials.
