St. Louis, Mo - If someone claiming to be from Ameren Missouri tells you that the Obama administration has a program to give you up to 15-hundred dollars to pay your electric bill...don’t give them any personal information. Scammers are at it again in Missouri and Illinois.

A statement from Ameren says as many as 900 Ameren customers have fallen for the scam. This is the second time the same ruse has appeared since mid-May. Ameren says there is no such program. She says victims are being contacted either in person, through email or are being given flyers with the Ameren logo.
