We are hearing reports from across the state that scammers are contacting public power customers, threatening service disconnection unless immediate payment is received. The scammers are using the recent winter storms in the latest twist, offering customers the option to pay bills over the phone rather than venturing out in the cold.
Some scammers are even using legitimate names of city employees when they call.
The Town of Louisburg does not call any customer and demand payment by money order or pre-paid card, or require you to pay by any means over the phone! DO NOT provide this information to anyone requesting on behalf of the Town of Louisburg. If you experience such a call and request, please contact the Town of Louisburg immediately as well as the Louisburg Police Department, 919-496-4145 and 919-496-4175 respectively.
