Utility scam hits LMUD customers
Tuesday, June 30, 2015 —There have been several reports from LMUD business customers who state they were contacted by an individual claiming to be an LMUD representative. The unknown individual demands payment for delinquent electric bills — customers are told an LMUD technician is on their way to disconnect their service if payment isn’t made immediately.
The caller instructs customers to go to Wal-Mart or Safeway, purchase a pre-paid debit card and call the fake representative with the card number and PIN. The caller tells the customer that if they fail to comply their utilities will be disconnected.Add a comment
