Anderson, IN— The Anderson Police are investigating reports about a SCAM occurring
throughout the city. Citizens are receiving calls from someone claiming to be from
Anderson City Utilities. They are threatening to shut off the power unless a payment is
made through the well-known payment app Zelle.
This request is not normal practice for the city utilities and should be considered a scam.
Please do not give them any of your personal information and do not send them money.
Should anyone receive a call of this nature, please contact the Anderson Police
Department at 765-648-6700 and file a report.
