TPD Warns of Utilities Scam

Oct 27, 2023 | Featured, Regional News

Torrington, WY October 27, 2023 — The Torrington Police Department is warning residents of a recent scam that was reported by a City of Torrington Utilities customer.

A City of Torrington utilities customer received a scam phone call this week from a person who was not a City of Torrington employee, claiming to be with the Utilities Department. The scam caller advised the person that they were due a significant refund, and offered to transfer them to another department so that they could get their money.

This is a classic scam structure where criminals try to tempt you to give out personal financial information in exchange for a refund.

Don’t fall for their tricks! The City of Torrington, or any other legitimate business, will never call you and ask for your personal financial information.

If you have questions, please feel free to call the team at the Torrington City Hall at 307-532-5666.
