BGMU Warns Customers of Billing Scam

Bowling Green Municipal Utilities is warning its customers to be aware of a multi-state scam thatís been reported in Tennessee and our local area. The scam targets utility customers and aims to steal identities and utility payments.

Scammers are claiming they can save you big money on your electric bill with a new program created by President Obama, but instead, they are stealing customersí identities and hard- earned money. Utility customers -- through phone calls, door-to-door visits or online solicitation -- are being asked for personal information such as their Social Security numbers on the pretense there is federal assistance for their utility bills. There is no such funding through the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank, BGMU officials say.

Under the scam, if a customer provides a Social Security number, they are given a bank routing number to pay their utility bill. The routing number is fraudulent, and no payments will be applied to any BGMU bills.

If you ever have any doubts about someone claiming to represent BGMU or about information given to you about a BGMU utility bill payment, hang up and call 270-782-1200 for verification. BGMU accepts payments at our office located at 801 Center Street, over the phone and via online payment at our website, www.bgmu.com. Remember, BGMU does not call to initiate a payment.
