The following is from Clark Public Utilities;

WARNING: We're continuing to hear from customers who have received calls claiming to be from Clark Public Utilities and threatening to disconnect power unless a payment is made immediately. This is a SCAM.

These calls can be very convincing and might even appear to be from our utility phone number. But they are fake and an illegal scheme.

If you receive a call from someone claiming to be from Clark Public Utilities and asking for a payment - HANG UP - then call us back at 360-992-3000 to check the status of your account. We are available 24/7, every day of the year.

Often the scam callers will instruct you to purchase a prepaid gift card (sometimes specifically a "green dot" card) and call back to pay using that card. The utility would never ask customers to do this.

All customers should be aware, but small businesses and seniors are heavily targeted. Please spread the word to friends and family.
