Scammer Targets EWEB Customers

EUGENE, Ore. — EWEB customers are being targeted by a scammer in order to get their personal financial information over the phone.

The scammer tells the customer that he needs this in order for them to avoid any interruption in their EWEB services.

At least two EWEB customers have reported since Monday that they received calls from the alleged scammer who calls himself Jason Martinez, who says he’s calling on behalf of EWEB. The man tells the victim to call a certain phone number and provide them with their 16-digit credit/debit card number, along with expiration date and CVC code.

EWEB says anyone who receives these suspicious calls should hang up and call their customer service department at (541) 685-7000.
