The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) issued a warning about a scam circulating online as blackouts continue to affect the state.

"There is a scam circulating on social media asking customers to text their private account numbers. Don’t do it!" ERCOT tweeted on Tuesday.

"We don’t need any of your info to get your power back on – we are working as fast as we possibly can."
