Beware of utility bill scams
There is currently a scam circulating throughout the nation where scammers are claiming that the president or the federal government will provide credits or apply payments to utility bills. Residents may be contacted by email, U.S. mail, social media, text, or direct phone calls. The scammers request residents’ Social Security numbers and other personal information, and then give victims fraudulent banking information to use to pay their utility bills.

The Department of Water Resources offers the following tips to prevent becoming a victim of these scams:

  • Please do not provide your personal or financial information to anyone you do not know
  • If you suspect you have been contacted by these scammers, contact your local police department
  • Do not attempt to make payments for utility bills using financial information from someone else
