MOORHEAD (KFGO-AM) -- Moorhead Public Service has issued an alert to its customers.
Customers have received calls from people attempting to get financial information. The callers claim to work for the utility and demand immediate payment for an overdue balance.
They're threatened with an immediate loss of service if they don't make a payment over the phone. MPS does not demand payment over the phone. Instead, it tries to work out a payment schedule with customers who have past due balances.
