Minnesota Power warns of phone scam

Email News Alerts

Minnesota Power customers are asked to be aware of a telephone scam we’ve been

hearing about from several customers this week. The caller poses as a Minnesota Power


employee and instructs the home/business owner to make a wire or cash payment or their

power will be disconnected that same day.

Please disregard these calls, hang up and call Minnesota Power at 800-228-4966 to report

this illegal activity or with questions or concerns you may have.
