Police urge Littleton residents to beware of billing scam


LITTLETON — Littleton police are advising residents to be aware of a scam involving fraudulent telephone calls in which a caller claims to represent the Littleton Water and Light Department.

“The caller … will advise your electrical service to your home or business is scheduled to be shut off today due to an outstanding bill,” police said in a news release issued Thursday.
..
“Do not provide any payment request made by the caller,” and do not call the 800 number the caller may provide, police urged residents.

“This is a scam to obtain monies and your financial information. Please make all inquiries about your electrical service direct to the Littleton Water and Light Department at 444-2915 per their request,” police concluded in the release.
