Versailles Police Warning About Utility Scam

Posted at 9:43 AM, Jan 02, 2019

VERSAILLES,  Ky. (LEX 18)– Police are warning residents of a phone scam that has been widely reported in Woodford County.

Police have received a report of a scam targeting area residents with Kentucky Utilities. If you receive a phone call from someone threatening to turn off services unless you pay them immediately, you should be suspicious of the legitimacy of the call.

It is recommended that you obtain the caller’s name and ID number, and call them back using the number that is printed on your billing statement.

Scammers are capable of spoofing a number that will appear to be legitimate.
