Business Owners Being Warned About Power Bill Scam

Small business owners are being warned about a phone scam.  Ameren spokesman Brian Bretsch says that the calls are made during a busy time of day and the caller orders the business to pay their overdue power bill.  If the victim agrees to pay, they are instructed to get a prepaid money card and call back, giving the ID number from that prepaid card.  That allows the scammer to transfer the money to a different account.
