Phone Scam Targeting Cedar Falls
CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (CBS 2/Fox 28) -- Cedar Falls Police say a new scam is targeting business owners in that city.
Some business owners have already been contacted by a caller claiming to be from MidAmerican Energy. The caller tells the customer that they have not paid an electricity bill and that their service will be disconnected if they do not provide their banking information over the phone.
The caller also claims that they provide disconnection service for Cedar Falls Utilities. Cedar Falls Police remind people to never give out personal information or account numbers over the phone. If someone has a question about their bill, they should contact their service provider directly.
