OKLAHOMA CITY – Agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation are warning Oklahoma residents about a scam that is targeting utility customers.

Officials say customers across the state have received phone calls from people claiming to be with their utility company’s billing department.

The caller tells the customers that they have a past due balance and if they do not provide credit card or bank account information, their service will be terminated.

Customers have also received emails telling them that their bill is now available and the amount owed is past due.

Officials stress that it is a fraudulent phone and email phishing scam.

Agents say that residents should not provide any information or click on any embedded links.

Instead, contact your service provider to pay a bill or determine if anything is owed.
