Lansing Board Of Water And Light Warns Of Phone Scam

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - The Lansing Board of Water and Light is warning customers about a possible phone scam.

They have received reports of imposters threatening customers to cut their service if they don't make a utility payment over the phone. The caller ID from the scam is 866-258-6606 and the scammers have identified themselves representing BWL, DTE or other utilities.

Consumers Energy issued a similar alert last week, where scamers were demanding utility payments over the phone with a Green Dot prepaid credit card.

BWL says never give money or personal information over the phone to anyone. Customers are never asked by customer service for credit card information over the phone or in person, or to make wire service payments.

Lansing Police have been notified and urge to report any suspicious activity to the BWL customer service at 517-702-6006.
