Fraudulent Utility Service Payment Calls

Oxford Electric Department would like their customers to be aware of fraudulent calls being made asking for payment of utility services with the threat of service being cut off otherwise.

These calls have been made from a 1-800 number and are in no way associated with Oxford Electric Department or the City of Oxford. OED is working with the Oxford Police Department investigating this. Customers should be aware that OED would never ask for moneygram payments over the phone, or for money to install a new meter at your home or business.

Any questions about your current account status can be determined by calling OED directly at 662-232-2373.
