NIPSCO is alerting customers of bill payment scams.

Most commonly, impersonators claiming to be NIPSCO employees are calling to inform customers of a delinquent bill and requesting that immediate payment be made to avoid being shut off.

If customers are unsure about the legitimacy of any e-mail, phone call, program or offer claiming to be affiliated with NIPSCO, please call NIPSCO’s 24-Hour Customer Service Center at 1-800-4NIPSCO (1-800-464-7726).

NIPSCO reminds customers who are uncertain of their current account status that they can check the information printed on their recent billing statement, call NIPSCO to speak directly with a customer service representative, or register and view their bill on NIPSCO’s secure website
