Officials warn about a sophisticated scam targeting Floresville Electric Light & Power System customers.

Detective George Ortiz of the Floresville Police Department warns people to take a moment and consider what they’re being asked to do by callers masquerading as the utility after a Floresville restaurant owner fell for the scam.

Advised her electricity would be cut off unless she immediately paid an overdue bill, the restaurant owner was told to purchase reloadable credit cards to cover the amount. She was later asked for her checking account information. Realizing then it was a scam, she tried to stop the credit card payments, but was too late.

If you receive a suspicious call, report it immediately to local law enforcement.

Read more about this in the April 6 issue of the Wilson County News.

Consider yourself warned. With a new scam every day, don't let them scare you into making a hasty decision.
