ANOTHER SCAM CIRCULATING AROUND THE AREA

(08/09/18)rp

The Police Department is wanting Flora and Clay County residents to be aware that there is another scam circulating around the area.

Its a phone scam where someone calls and says that they are representing Ameren Electric, stating that if you do not pay your bill, your utilities will be shut off. Since you are City of Flora utility customers (not Ameren), your utilities will not be shut off.

If you receive one of these calls please do not give out any sensitive information or financial information.

If you suspect you are being scammed hang up and call the publicly listed corporate office phone number.
