Page Utility is reporting a utility phone scam targeting the Page and Lake Powell area.

The utility company is absolutely NOT calling local businesses and threatening to turn off power.” – Bryan Hill/General Manager, Page Utility

scamalert_smallHill says they have received several reports from area businesses reporting a caller who demands payment and says if the utility bill isn’t paid immediately, power will be shut-off. Hill says the caller than asks for credit card information to take payment over the phone. Hill says don’t pay and, instead, call the utility company immediately. Under no circumstances should you ever give your credit card number over the phone during a call you have not initiated.

Hill also says that so far, they have only received reports that commercial businesses are being targeted in the current phone scam.
