The Athens Police Department has been advised of a potential phone scam involving city water service.

Captain Ralph Harvey released a PSA Monday evening warning people to be on high alert.

According to the announcement, the scammers have been telling people their water service payment is overdue.

They then threaten the customers water will be turned off if payment is not immediately submitted over the phone.

The City of Athens Utilities Billing says this is not how overdue accounts are handled. For more information, contact Utilities Billing at 740-592-3347.
