TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Tupelo Water and Light is warning its customers of a scam.
Director Johnny Timmons says his office received about 20 phone calls Monday morning from people reporting they had been contacted about their power bills.
Customers reported that someone reached out to them saying their bill was due and if they didn’t pay right away, their utility would be shut off.
Timmons wants the public to know the department will not ask for payments over the phone.
