September 30, 2013

In light of a recent scam that has begun to surface across Nebraska, Broken Bow Municipal Utilities and Nebraska Municipal Power Pool would like to remind customers of their payment policies. According to a recent article in NMPP's newsletter, ESSENT, a number of communities have reported receiving calls from customers who say they received calls from someone claiming to be a utility employee and threatening to shut off services until paid. The calls were placed to local businesses and restaurants, and the caller sought payment through email or over the phone.
