There's a new phone scam out there, but it's a lot like some old ones. Casper City Hall sent out this press release...

The Casper City Hall Customer Service Department has received phone calls regarding a water utility phone scam. City of Casper utility customers are being contacted and asked to pay their delinquent water bill by a GreenDot Card. The City of Casper does not use this method of payment. Additionally, if by chance a customer’s account is in delinquent status, the delinquency is first contacted by a notice in the mail, followed by an automated phone call if the customer’s phone number is available. City of Casper has verified this is a scam and the Casper Police Department has been notified.

Customers can call our number 235-8400 if they have further questions.
