How to spot a scam

Don’t become a victim.Don't fall for scammers graphic

In one of the most common scams, the caller may:

  • Pretend to be from your utility (Your caller ID may even display your utility’s name).
  • Threaten to turn off power, water or natural gas service to your home or business within an hour.
  • Demand immediate payment – often by a pre-paid debit card (Sometimes even specifying where you need to buy the card).

Suspect a scammer?  Here’s what to do if the call seems suspicious:

  1. Hang up.
  2. Call Dawson PPD.
  3. Call law enforcement.

DO NOT pay over the phone if immediate payment is demanded to avoid a disconnection.
