Residents Warned of Utility Bill Phone Scam

Residents are being warned of a phone scam where someone using the Frankfort Municipal Utilities’ billing office phone number is making calls saying if homeowners don’t pay their bills over the phone immediately, their service will be cut off.
According to Utilities General Manager Todd Corrie, any billing notifications are always sent through the mail.
“It is not our practice to call people regarding billing issues. We always mail them information, so anyone who receives a call demanding payment over the phone or their service will be cut off should hang up and call 765-654-4431,” Corrie said.
Clinton County Central Dispatch will send a police officer out to get information from the resident.
