JAMESTOWN – The Jamestown Board of Public Utilities is warning its customers about a continued scam.

The Utility says scammers are at it again, calling or emailing customers asking for payment in the form of gift cards, prepaid cards or money transfers.

If payment is not made, the scammer threatens to disconnect service.

To make matters worse, the scammers call from numbers disguised as they ring from an official BPU phone.

The Utility says this is not the case, and are reminding customers not to fall for the tick.
