Vectren warns customers of bill payment scam

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

Officials say there's a multi-state bill payment scam that's re-surfacing in the U.S. and the Tri-State. 

The scam artist is mostly targeting businesses, but some customers have also been contacted. 

During the call, the person claims to be a representative with the utility company and warns the customer their utilities will be shut off if they don't make an immediate payment. 

Customers are instructed to purchase a pre-paid debit card to do that. 

Officials say they never require customers to do that. 

If you get one of those calls, call police.
