Telephone scams are active in our area again. The scam is they tell the customer that their utility bill is past due and if they don't pay immediately they will be disconnected. They are targeting mostly businesses and have been known to contact residential customers also. The amounts they ask for can vary, but usually not over $1,000. This is due to the fact most money orders or prepaid cards are not issued over $1,000. If you are contacted, do not give them any information. If you have any questions about your Canby Utility bill, please contact our office at 503-266-1156. We will be happy to assist you.
