September 2014 - Notice to Our Customers:
On September 18, 2014, we received phone calls from three of our customers in Pembroke who were contacted by a toll-free 1-800 number by a person claiming to be from a hydro company. The customers were told that their account was in arrears and if they did not make a payment, their electricity would be disconnected. The calls were fraudulent and we wish to issue a warning.
We wish to remind our customers that Ottawa River Power Corp. provides our customers with their account details and does not accept credit card payment, nor electronic wire transfers, over the phone from customers. Please take caution not to provide any personal information to unknown people over the phone, including your ORPC account number.
