Give feedback Thursday

Austin Utilities warns

customers about scams

City of Austin Utilities wants all customers to be aware of individuals posing as city of Austin or Austin Energy employees to steal money.

Nearly 90 commercial and residential customers have called the Utilities Customer Contact Center as of Tuesday reporting that they have received calls from someone claiming to be with the city or Austin Energy.

The scammers tell customers they owe money and that their utilities will be shut off if immediate payment is not made. In some cases, the calls are automated, and in others, they are from an actual person. Customers are asked to call 800-293-5240 or 512-293-5240.

Austin Energy reminds customers that it does not call with shut-off deadlines, will never ask for credit card or wire transfers over the phone and will never demand payment in person with cash, gift cards or digital currency.
