Updated: Wednesday, July 23 2014, 06:34 PM CDT
DUBUQUE, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) – Police in Dubuque are warning residents about a phone scam in the area.
Officers say they’ve received reports of someone calling homes and businesses claiming to be with Alliant Energy. They then tell the victims that they are behind on payments and that their services will be cutoff unless payments are made immediately.
Dubuque Police are now recommending that people who receive a call from Alliant call the company to verify whether they owe any money before making any payments.
They also urge residents to notify them if they believe they are being targeted by the scam.
