There is an ongoing phone scam targeting utility customers in the area. Scammers call potential victims claiming to be from Rocky Mountain Power. They tell customers they are late on their bill and will be disconnected unless they make a payment immediately. The caller will then ask the victim to give them their credit card number or purchase a prepaid card and share that number. No legitimate utility company, including Rocky Mountain Power, will request payment in this manner.
