HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Huntsville Utilities is once again advising customers to remain vigilant after receiving reports of more scam calls Saturday morning.
In a tweet, HU said any call demanding immediate payment to stop service from being cut off is a scam. HU said customers should simply hang up.
The utility reminded customers they can always check the status of their account by calling the Customer Information Center at (256) 535-1200 during regular business hours.
SCAM ALERT! We are receiving reports of increased scam activity targeting HU customers this morning. If you receive a call threatening to cut off your service & requesting immediate payment, IT IS A SCAM (even if the caller ID reads Huntsville Utilities)! Simply hang up. pic.twitter.com/lgP27xqIe4
