Beware Phone Scammers from “Department of Water Supply”

If you get a phone call from someone who says you owe money on your water bill ad demands payment by phone, hang up, whether you actually owe money or not.  It’s a scam.
Both the Hawaii County Department of Water Supply (DWS) and the Hawaii Police Department have issued a press releases warning the public of the scam. The DWS says it’s received reports from residents who have experienced such calls from someone claiming to be from the DWS.

“The individuals call Water Supply customers and threaten to shut off water service because of a past due water bill,” says the water department’s release. “The DWS would like to inform the public that these calls are fraudulent and an attempt to receive payment over the phone.”

Anyone who receives such a call should report it tothe Police Department’s non-emergency line at 935-3311. Members of the community may also call the DWS Office at 961-8050 to file an additional report.
