Don’t Fall For This Phone Scam From A Fake Brainerd Public Utilities


Brainerd Public Utilities had to put out a Facebook post on Monday telling people to be aware of a phone scam.

BPU tells people to not fall for a phone call from someone that claims to be them and then telling people that they are qualified for a refund for overpayment.

BPU asks that if you get this kind of phone call that you hang up immediately and that the real Public Utilities office will never ask for bank information over the phone.
