APD advises public about utility phone scam

Posted: Updated:
ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - The Alexandria Police Department has received several calls regarding the most recent phone scam. The caller would identify him or herself as a City of Alexandria Utility Employee and demand payment or their utilities would be cut off.

Utility officials state that it is not their policy to make phone contact with customers regarding this matter. Utility officials state customers would simply get their utility bill with a cut-off notice attached if necessary.

APD advises to simply ignore the phone call and hang up.
