Utility company warns of payment scam

EVANSVILLE, IN (WAVE) - An Indiana utility company is warning customers of a multi state bill payment scam.

Vectren said scammers are making unsolicited phone calls claiming to representatives of the Evansville based utility company.

The scammer warns customers the utility company will disconnect the customer's service if they do not make an immediate payment.

Customers are told to buy a prepaid debit card to call back to make a payment.

Vectren said it does not accept prepaid credit or debit cards for payment and would never require a customer to purchase one to make any kind of payment.
