New Phone Scam Targets Jamestown Board Of Public Utility Customers

JAMESTOWN – A new phone scam is targeting Jamestown Board of Public Utility customers.

The Jamestown BPU says scammers are calling their customers and threatened to shut-off their utilities if they do not make an immediate payment.








The customer is then transferred to a “representative” who requests account numbers and payment information.

These calls have come from two numbers that appear local: (716) 640-1668 and (716) 377-4384.









BPU customers are reminded that the utility company does not make such calls to customers and that Customer Service representatives do not take payment information over the phone.
