Utility district urges customers to beware of fraudulent telephone calls
Wednesday, June 4, 2014 — The Lassen Municipal Utility District has received calls from several customers indicating they have received automated voice notifications that their power will be disconnected.Please be aware that LMUD does not leave automated messages regarding disconnections or any other LMUD matter.
“We are trying to get more information on the exact nature of these calls,” said Keri Richards, the district’s business office manager. “If you have any doubts about any phone calls from someone claiming to be the power or electric company, please call the LMUD office at 257-4174.”
Never make a payment to anyone who cannot positively identify himself or herself as an LMUD employee. Customers who are contacted or have been contacted by the automated message scam are encouraged to report the matter immediately to LMUD.
