Consolidated will never leave messages about past-due bills on your answering machine. We do make robocalls, but if we miss you, we’ll simply ask you to call our office, and we’ll never leave personal information or ask you to provide yours. At this time, members should also be on the lookout for suspicious emails or people impersonating Consolidated employees, or other types of utility employees. Unfortunately, scammers take advantage of opportunities when households are otherwise preoccupied.
