Vectren is warning customers of a bill payment scam.

Vectren officials says customers receive a phone call from an individual claiming to represent the company. That individual warns the utility will disconnect the customer's energy service if the customer does not make an immediate payment.

Customers are then asked to purchase a prepaid debit card and provide the receipt number and pin number. That gives the caller access to the card's funds and the ability to drain its balance.
