Minnesota Power warns of phone scam

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.

Minnesota Power provides electric service within a 26,000-square-mile area in northeastern

Minnesota, supporting comfort, security and quality of life for 143,000 customers, 16

municipalities and some of the largest industrial customers in the United States. More
