VERNON PARISH, La. (VPSO) - The Vernon Parish Sheriff's Office has received information that residents are being contacted by individuals threatening to disconnect electrical services to their homes.
The resident is instructed to purchase Green Dot credit cards, iTunes cards, or other credit cards to pay the alleged delinquent bill.
This is a scam. If you are contacted by such a person, immediately hang up and call your electric company to confirm any outstanding balances. Do not send any funds to these people. Any funds that are sent will not be recovered.
