MOSES LAKE – The Grant County PUD is offering advice to people who suspect they are being scammed by a person claiming to represent the district.

There has been an influx in Basin residents receiving calls from people claiming to represent the PUD. Small businesses have most recently been targeted.

Telephone scammers called Grant PUD customers and threatened to shut off their electricity unless an immediate payment is made, PUD spokesperson Thomas Stredwick said.

PUD customers reported receiving calls from individuals misrepresenting themselves as PUD employees and demanding the customers meet them in a location other than a PUD office to pay their bills.


The Scituate Police Department is issuing another warning to the community after an increase in reports about scams.

Detective Sgt. Paul Norton said scammers are targeting residents as well as businesses. He warned residents that scammers often have pertinent information about those they are calling – names of employees or family members, knowledge of utility, credit card or bank accounts – and this makes them sound legit.

They pose as utility and credit card companies, bail bondsmen, banks, the IRS, and even police departments, Norton said. You name it.

Sioux Falls, SD (KELO AM):A phone scam is going around Sioux Falls aimed at small businesses. The scammers claim to be with Xcel Energy and state the business owes money that must be paid with pre-paid credit cards such as a Green Dot Prepaid card.

Several businesses recieved the call Thursday afternoon, however all recognized it was a scam and no money was lost. The scammers initially say the electric bill is past due then change their message to say new meters have been installed, so the payment owed is separate from the monthly electric bill. The scammers also claim if payment is not received within a short time period, like 35 minutes, the company will shut off the power.
