UTILITY CUSTOMERS WARNED OF SCAM
Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor warns consumers about an ongoing scam. A consumer may receive a call from someone claiming there is a delinquent bill that must be satisfied immediately with a prepaid debit card. The caller will threaten immediate disconnection if the consumer doesn’t comply. Officials say to notify the utility immediately if this happens. By state law, utility companies must provide written notice 14 days prior to disconnection.
