Local utilities warn customers of telephone scam

Posted: Updated:

TRI-CITIES, WA - Local utilities -- Benton PUD, Franklin PUD and Richland Energy Services -- urge customers to be aware of unusual and unlawful requests by phone.

Both local residents and businesses have received calls in which they were told the caller is collecting on a past due account and demanding they pay immediately or they will be disconnected that day.

Do not provide your personal information. Hang up and call your utility.
