Door and Kewaunee county residential and business customers are being warned to watch out for scammers demanding immediate payment of their utility bills. Wisconsin Public Service customers in the central and northern parts of the state have received calls that they’re delinquent on their bills and been told it’s time to pay up. WPS spokesman Matt Cullen says the scammers have taken steps to sound legitimate.
One person has been cheated out of hundreds of dollars. Cullen says if you receive such a call, hang up and contact WPS immediately to know your current bill status.
