Please see an important announcement from the City of Saskatoon regarding utility payment scams.
For Immediate Release: June 30, 2015
CITY CAUTIONS RESIDENTS ABOUT UTILITY PAYMENT SCAM
The City of Saskatoon is cautioning customers about a new telephone scam. Customers are receiving calls where the caller claims to represent the City of Saskatoon and says utilities will be disconnected if a payment is not received, and possibly asking for credit card or bank information.
The City of Saskatoon is reminding customers that credit card or bank account information is never collected over the telephone. The City of Saskatoon will send notices regarding outstanding utility account balances in the mail, and use an automated dialer to remind customers to contact Corporate Revenue before utility services are impacted.
Customers are asked to report suspicious calls by contacting Corporate Revenue at 306-975-2400 or the Saskatoon Police Service at 306-975-8300.
