Georgetown police are investigating a complaint about an electric company scam, according to a post on the department Facebook page.
Someone on Front Street called police Tuesday to report receiving a call about their electric account being placed on a “temporary hold.” The customer was told the electric would be disconnected in 30 minutes unless they called an 866 number to arrange a payment, police said. The caller, who was female, did not identify herself as a city employee.
The customer called the number provided but did not give any payment.
Police ask anyone who receives similar such calls to call police at 545-4300
