A scam involving Ameren Missouri is going around in the Mexico area again over the past couple of days.
Several residents are receiving a call from someone claiming to represent Ameren Missouri and telling the victim that they are behind on their bill.
The caller demands immediate payment or the power to their home or business will be shut off.
Another scam is also being reported where a person calls saying they are from Micorsoft and want to fix the victim’s computer.
Mexico Public Safety is reminding folks the best protection is to remember is that legitimate businesses will not require payment in ways that are harder to track such as money cards.
