Scammers are continuously coming up with new angles to trick members into giving up their personal information or credit card numbers. We would like to remind our members to always be on the lookout for scams.
If you receive a call, text message or email asking you about your electric bill, demanding payment or personal information, it’s best to hang up immediately or ignore that request and call us directly at 574-936-3161.
When paying your bill online, always be sure you are at the correct website. The online bill payment customer service portal can be viewed at ebill.marshallcoremc.com/oscp. Access to this link can be found on the Marshall County REMC website, www.marshallremc.com.

Other scams to watch out for:
- Government agencies like the IRS will never call to inform you that you have unpaid taxes to or other liens against you. You will always receive this type of information in the mail. If someone calls claiming to be the IRS, hang up immediately.
- If you receive an email from an unknown sender with typos or threatening action unless a sum of money is paid, do not click any links provided within the email. Simply delete the email, or send it to your spam folder.
- If someone calls your home claiming to have discovered a virus on your computer, hang up. The caller’s intent is to access personal information you may have on your computer.
