JUST RECEIVED FROM THE LABETTE ASSISTANCE CENTER - NOTICE OF FRAUDULENT CALLERS!
We received a fraudulent call from 866-276-0270 stating they were from EVERGY (formerly Westar) and that our utilities would be disconnected in the next 30 minutes! I called the number back and the answering machine does sound legitimate. “Thank you for calling Evergy….press 1, 2 or 3" etc. HOWEVER, this is NOT a legitimate phone number for Evergy. Evergy will give a 24-hour notice PRIOR TO DISCONNECTING your electricity!
EVERGY customer service: 800-383-1183.
Please be careful in giving ANY information to callers you have not verified and DO NOT give money in any form until you have verified you are working with LEGITIMATE CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVES!
PLEASE CONTACT THE CUSTOMER SERVICE NUMBER ON YOUR BILL SHOULD YOU RECEIVE A CALL REGARDING DISCONNECT FROM ANY COMPANY!
Thank you for your help in sharing this information,
Lee Ann Spencer, Coordinator Labette Assistance Center
