MERRILLVILLE, IN - NIPSCO has seen a recent uptick in customer reports of scammers calling
homes and businesses posing as NIPSCO employees. As the holiday season approaches, NIPSCO expects scam attempts to continue to rise - an issue impacting many energy companies around the U.S.
Recent and common reports from NIPSCO residential and business customers state that they have received calls and texts from people claiming to be NIPSCO employees and demanding payment to avoid their service being disconnected. However, the company wants to emphasize that NIPSCO does not call and demand immediate payment via a prepaid card.
If customers are unsure of their account status, they may log into their account at NIPSCO.com or contact NIPSCO’s Customer Care Center at 1-800-464-7726. Additionally, customers should NOT call any number they are given.
