Home and business owners in Sulphur Springs may be receiving a phone call from a group claiming to be with the city’s water department. City Manager Marc Maxwell has announced that this is indeed a scam.
Scammers are attempting to con residents by calling to inform them that the water lines at their residence or business will be shut off unless a “remaining balance is paid in full within two hours of the phone call.”
Maxwell says to not be fooled by the claim. The City of Sulphur Springs alerts its residents by mailing out notices which allow them ten days to pay an overdue water balance.
