Scammers Target Utility Customers
Police in the communities of Boone and Jefferson are informing the public that local citizens are receiving scam phone calls where the caller says they're from the electric company.
The caller threatens to disconnect service if they don't receive a payment over the phone. Please help us raise awareness of these scam phone calls. If you receive one of these calls, report it to local law enforcement. If you are concerned about the status of your electric account, call your local utility at the phone number listed on their bill, website, and/or in the phone book.
