KALISPELL - Details are emerging in a possible energy scam that's duping people in the Flathead. Some Flathead Valley residents received a postcard in the mail from Solar Tek, a company promising ways to save money on energy bills.

Flathead Electric Supervisor of Energy Services Ross Holter was a postcard recipient and ae attended one of the seminars run by the scam group, where he took notes and quickly learned that the seminar was a hoax of false information to get consumers' money.

"We're just trying to get the word out cause we just want to help, keep people from being victimized by such a terrible scam," Holter explained.

One Flathead Valley resident paid almost $1,000 for a tool to help his energy costs and never received it from the company and Flathead County Sheriffs Detective Pat Walsh is working to catch the predators and is asking for help on the case.

"What we'd like to do is we'd like to warn people out there and if there is anybody else that was victimized by this thing I'd like to know and I can add it to my charges," Walsh told us.

Holter says that if any postcards or offers on energy savings come to your residence, simply call Flathead Electric Cooperative to determine if it's a hoax.
