HORIZON CITY, Texas

The Horizon City Police Department is warning people to be weary of a phone scam.

They say they've received complaints where callers call people claiming to be from El Paso Electric and then ask for payment.

The caller claims the electric meter isn't working and they should pay over the phone with a pre-paid cash card and then claims the customer will be refunded on their next bill.

Police say the calls even show up as El Paso Electric Company on the caller ID but it's a fake identification.

El Paso police issued the same warning about this scam in May.
