Owensboro Residents Reporting Bogus Calls from Scammers
Another round of scams is hitting the area, this time targeting the City of Owensboro. Owensboro Police have received numerous calls from people claiming they have been called by someone claiming to be with Owensboro Municipal Utilities. The caller is asking for personal and account information and allegedly threatening to shut off the person’s power if they do not pay a bill over the phone. Owensboro Police verified with OMU that the calls appear to be bogus and urge anyone receiving those types of calls to never give any personal information and to just hang up the phone.
