Atmos Energy warns of scam about Obama

A natural gas company serving Tennessee, Georgia and 10 other states has warned customers that President Barack Obama will not be paying their bills. Dallas-based Atmos Energy says the scheme falsely claims Obama is providing credits or directly paying utility bills.

Atmos spokeswoman Jennifer Ryan said scammers then asked for the customer's Social Security number. Ryan says Atmos workers always carry proper identification and never contact customers requiring personal information.
