LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Xcel Energy is warning customers about a new phone scam in the area.

Apparently, scammers are calling customers and seeking payment over the phone with a number that appears to be from Xcel Energy.

The scammer will then say that your power will be disconnected if a payment is not made right then over the phone.

So, tonight, Xcel Energy is reminding customers that's not the way it happens.

Instead, they will always send a disconnect notice in the mail before trying to reach out by phone.

If you receive one of these suspicious calls, please call one of the numbers listed on your screen.
