SCAM ALERT FOR LINCOLN ELECTRIC MEMBERS:
We have received reports of our members been targeted in a scam attempt. The caller claims to be from Lincoln Electric and requests payment immediately or they will shut off your power. The caller ID will show a Montana number (so far we have seen 406-633-8526). They will request that you go to the nearest Walgreens or Wal-Mart and purchase a Green Dot Money Pak Same Day Payment application in the amount they say. At that point, they want you to call them back so they can process the payment.
PLEASE DO NOT PROVIDE PAYMENT OF ANY KIND TO THEM.
If you receive a call like this, please report to Lincoln Electric at 406-889-3301.
