Warnings Go Out About Local Utility Scam
Both Warren RECC and Bowling Green Municipal Utilities report that some residents and businesses have been contacted by individuals representing themselves as employees and attempting to obtain credit card information.
The caller tells the member he or she has an overdue bill, which can be paid for over the phone with a credit card. Both utilities remind customers they do not accept credit card information over the phone.
The calls are being reported as coming from different areas within an eight county area in south central Kentucky.
The utilities are advising that if you receive a call, do not give out any personal or financial information and report it to local police, to WRECC or to BGMU.
