Beware of phone scam targeting Douglas utility customers Submitted photo

City of Douglas officials would like to alert residents that a phone scam is targeting Douglas Utility customers.



If a customer receives a phone call from someone impersonating a City of Douglas employee write the phone number down and report the incident to local law enforcement authorities. Although the City of Douglas does have an automatic calling system that alerts customers their account is past due, the system does not attempt to collect funds over the telephone. Citizens should call the Customer Care Center by dialing 3-1-1 or (912) 384-3302 to verify the call is legitimate.



The scam caller states they are the City of Douglas Utilities/Customer Service/Disconnection Department, and the customer's utilities are about to be disconnected. Officials say the scam caller has even tried getting customers to purchase gift cards to pay the bill.



Customers are urged to be alert and to report any suspicious activity to local law officials by calling 911's non-emergency number, 912-384-7675, or the "See Something, Say Something" Crime Tip Line at 912-260-3600.
