Telephone Scam Warning
(INDEPENDENCE, Mo.) Monday, December 9, 2013 The City of Independence Utilities Customer Service is warning its customers about another telephone scam. These scams seem to increase around the holidays, and residents are advised to be cautious.
At least six residents have notified the City after receiving a call allegedly from Independence Power & Light. The caller spoke Spanish, and told them their power would be shut off if they did not make payment.
The City of Independence, including its departments, will not request personal information via the telephone.
Anyone who receives such a call should not answer any of the questions and instead should call the Independence Police Department at 816-836-3600.
