Ameren Corporation Reissues Warning About Scammers Who Obtain SS Numbers

July 6, 2012

Missouri – Ameren Corporation is urging its customers to be vigilant against scammers who illegally obtain Social Security numbers, reports said.

Ameren, a holding company for several power and energy companies based in St. Louis, reissued the warning regarding the said scam, which is nearly identical to one that occurred in May.

According to a report in, the company said in its website that scammers claim that President Barack Obama is applying payments or credits of up to $1,500 to the customer’s utility bill.

Such allegations are false, the company said. Scammers tell Ameren customers to pay their utility bills using a bank routing number which they provide, as well as the number at the back of their Social Security cards to serve as bank account numbers.

Company officials also reminded its customers that the con artists visit customers in person, post flyers, and use text messaging and social media to spread this scam.
