Alert for “Spoofed” Utility Phone Numbers

Hartselle Utilities has been notified that scammers are “spoofing” the caller ID to show “Hartselle Utilities” or our main office number (256) 773-3340 when they call.  This is an increasingly common technique used by scam artists to switch their caller ID information with local phone numbers to make it look like the calls are from a nearby person or business like HU, to try to get you to answer their calls.

We are aware of other scam tactics being used in our service area.  For example, scammers have make false claims that our customer’s utility services are about to be cut off due to non-payment and that the only way to prevent this is to purchase pre-paid debit cards, call them back at a specific number and give them the card information.  Another example, scammers may ask you to confirm your social security number to verify information on your utility account.

Hartselle Utilities will never call and ask for personal identifying information like your social security number over the phone, and this information is only ever gathered in-person at our office when setting up your service account.  And if you ever receive a call telling you your utility service is moments away from being cut off unless you pay, JUST HANG UP.  To confirm the status of your account call Hartselle Utilities directly at (256) 773-3340.

If you think your personal information has been compromised, contact your bank or other financial institution immediately.  Please understand that if you have been the victim of a scam, we are limited in what we can do. We cannot refund your money or give you a credit. Your best course of action is to contact local law enforcement.

If you have any questions or wish to report a new possible scam tactic, email us at inquires@hartselleutilities.org.
