The Wickenburg Police Department would like to warn citizens and businesses about another APS scam. WPD has received a report of an individual falsely claiming to represent the company to attain payment for electricity consumed or make a generic reference to the “electric company,” “electric utility” or “power company.” The caller claims the customer has an overdue bill amount and that service will be disconnected if payment isn’t made immediately. The caller will give a false name, contact and extension number and refer to themselves as an "account specialist". APS does not contact customers via phone or in person to request credit card or other banking information. In the event of delinquent balance or shut-off notice, APS uses the following means of communication: customer bill, text message, automated dialer message, letter or door hanger left at the residence. If there ever is a question about the validity of a person claiming to be an APS representative, customers are urged to ask for an employee identification number and to call the APS Customer Care Center at 602-371-3614 to verify employee status. If a person is misrepresenting himself/herself as an APS employee, customers should immediately call 911.
