City Issues Phone Scam Warning

43

The City of Milford is issuing a warning to it’s utility customers. Beware of phone scammers.

A scammer has been calling area residents and businesses claiming to be from Milford’s utility department informing them their account is past due and unless payment is made right away the service will be disconnected. The scammers may even use “spoofing technology” that makes a caller ID display Milford’s phone number.

Don’t fall for it! The City will never call and threaten immediate service disconnection. We will never call and demand payment via a prepaid debit card. If you receive a call like this – hang up. If you are concerned about your account, call us at 302.422.6616 and speak to a real City employee.
