Beware Utility Imposters

PDEC EmployeeAt the Door...

  • Ask for identification - All Pee Dee Electric employees and contractors carry photo identification badges, and are required to display their badge if asked. We encourage you to ask for identification.
  • If you are unsure about an employee's identification, or want to verify the nature of the work to be done at your home, call us at (866) 747-0060 or (843) 665-4070.

Do not allow people into your home who...

  • Claim to offer a PDEC refund. Our employees never deliver cash refunds or rebates to members' homes.
  • Claim to sell PDEC products or services. Our employees do not engage in door-to-door sales.
  • Do not pay for tree-trimming work by individuals claiming to be from PDEC or contractor. We do not charge for line clearance work.
  • Call the police if you believe the person at your door is a con artist posing as a utility worker.

On the Phone...

  • Ask for identification - pull out your most recent PDEC bill and ask the caller to tell you the account number and the amount due.
  • If you have caller I.D., the display will indicate that the call is from Pee Dee Electric.
  • If you suspect the call may be fraudulent, hang up and call us toll-free at (866) 747-0060 or (843) 665-4070. Ask to be connected to a member service representative who can confirm the status of your account and make appropriate arrangements for payment, if needed.
