News Mississippi Scam Alert: Watch Out for Phony Atmos E-mail

DALLAS, Texas–If you are an Atmos customer, watch out for an e-mail that is geared to get your personal info. The Dallas-based company that served Mississippi, said in a news release that an e-mail is going around that has malware aimed at harvesting things like your social security number from your computer.

This is the news release with all the info:

Atmos Energy Corporation says beware of a widespread email scam which portrays a bogus bill from Atmos Energy. The emails have been sent to Atmos Energy customers as well as people who are not customers throughout the United States.

“The fraudulent billing message references a fake account number and contains links to spam,” said Jennifer Ryan, Atmos Energy Media Relations Director.  “The email provides links to view your bill but if the recipient clicks on the link it takes them to a compromised website that harbours malware. We are asking anyone who receives this email to delete it immediately and do not click on any links.”

Ryan also says if you are an Atmos Energy customer who receives this email and the account number displayed in the email does not match your Atmos Energy account number or the email appears suspicious, please do not click on any hyperlinks. Instead, visit and log into your account to review your statements.

If you have any questions regarding this scam, please contact Atmos Energy toll-free at 1-888-286-6700.
