UTILITY SERVICE SCAM

 

The City of Napoleon would like to advise customers to be aware of a recently reported scam regarding utility services.

            Residents are reporting unsolicited phone calls from individuals claiming they can lower utility rates; and then asking for account information.  These calls are not coming from the City of Napoleon

            Consumers can help protect themselves by never giving personal information over the phone; and also not trusting caller ID’s.  When in doubt, hang up and then use a number on a recent statement to call your utility company.

            And anyone who suspects a scam or any unfair business practice can contact the Ohio Attorney General’s office.
