Postcard Scam Hits Flathead County

Posted: Updated:

KALISPELL - Officials with the Flathead Electric Cooperative want to warn the community about recent energy scams circulating throughout the area.

They say scam artists are sending postcards in the mail inviting you to a free dinner and presentation on energy cost savings.

After the presentation, the scanners will then try to sell installation products they say will help conserve energy. Instead they are scamming you out of money.

According to Flathead Electric several residents were already duped out of hundreds of dollars after purchasing installation products.

"It might be like a blue tart material with foil on one side and what they try to do is get you to agree to let them put that in your attic space and its going to save you all this energy by blocking heat transfer and it doesn't do you any good,"  Flathead Electric Supervisor Ross Holter said.

Flathead Electric is working to catch these scammers. They are asking the public to contact them if anyone receives this postcard.
