Scam Alert: The Sheriff's Office has been receiving increased reports that residents are getting telephone calls from Utility Companies indicating the customer's bill is past due. The caller demands payment or the customers utilities will be shut off. Just a reminder that if you receive these type of calls, you should call the Utility Company yourself. Do not call the number the caller provides, do not call the number on caller id, look for your Utility Company's phone number on your bill. Do not provide any financial information to the caller over the phone.
