Recently, there have several been reports of phone scams aimed at local utility customers. Callers attempt to convince their targets to provide personal debit and credit card information, stating there is a past due balance and power will be disconnected unless an immediate payment is made. With this information, the scammer can ring up enormous debt in the victim’s name.
Tillamook PUD cautions you to be careful with any phone call that seems suspicious. Never give personal information without knowing who you are speaking to. If a caller claims to be a Tillamook PUD representative and you have any doubt, hang up and call us immediately at 503.842.2535 or 800.422.2535.
