Telephone scam circulating in Kane County

KANAB — The Kane County Sheriff’s Office posted a warning Tuesday regarding a telephone scam circulating in Kanab.

The Sheriff’s Office and Garkane Power have each received multiple reports about the scam, the statement said.

Kanab businesses have been contacted by a caller stating the business’ power bill is overdue. The caller then demands immediate payment over the phone to prevent the power from being disconnected.

Anyone receiving such a call is advised not to make the requested payment or give the caller any finance card information.

“Utility companies do not collect payment in this manner,” the statement said.
