BASTROP COUNTY, Texas -- There's a warning out Tuesday for Bluebonnet Electric customers.
The co-op says people claiming to be Bluebonnet employees have been trying to trick customers in to making payments for supposedly "delinquent" accounts.
The fake employees are trying to use third parties such as PayPal, Radio Shack or Walgreens to collect the money. The scam is targeting Spanish-speaking co-op members in Bastrop and surrounding areas.
Officials at Bluebonnet say that members should never give their account information out over the phone.
You can call the customer service number with questions at 800-842-7708.
