The Dothan Police Department recently received a call from the City of Dothan Utilities Division.
Employees of utilities advised they have had several recent reports from customers, primarily business accounts, who say they have received a call from someone claiming to be with Dothan Utilities demanding a credit card number for payment.
The callers’ voice is described as an American, female, calling from a blocked phone number.
The Dothan Police Department would like to confirm this is a scam and fortunately, everyone contacted thus far have refused to give such information. Calls requesting credit card information are not placed by the Utilities Division and anyone receiving this or similar calls should not share any information and disconnect immediately.
