    Utility Scam: Callers Say They're from City of New Bern

    Local businesses have notified the City of New Bern that they've been getting calls today from people posing as the "City of New Bern Utilities/Electric Department."  The callers say the business owes money for an overdue utility bill and they must pay it immediately over the phone or the caller will disconnect service.  THIS IS A SCAM! THIS IS *NOT* THE CITY OF NEW BERN! These scammers are trying to steal your credit card and personal information over the phone. We will NEVER call you demanding payment or asking for your personal information. If you have a question about your utility bill, call (252)639-2750.  We're here Monday through Friday 8am - 5 pm to answer questions and help you with your payment needs.  Be vigilant against these scammers. Hang up on them and never give your personal information over the phone.
