Alabama Power Company is trying to stop what it is calling an effective scam.

The company says customers have been getting calls from people pretending to work for Alabama Power.

The customers are told they have a short deadline to make a payment. They are told to buy a re-loadable debit card, and then call another number to share the card’s account number.

Alabama Power says the fraud has focused on commercial customers. The company is contacting those customers by phone and putting special messages in their bills to warn them.
