Atmos Energy posted the following warning to customers and non-customers on its website regarding a widespread email scam:
"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 individuals who are not customers.
"The fraudulent billing message references a fake account number and contains links to spam. 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. Anyone who receives this email should delete it immediately and do not click on any links."
