WG&L alerts customers about phone scam

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Someone claiming to be from WG&L is calling customers, claiming they owe money, and need to pay up.  So far, five customers have complained, and one of them did give out her personal information.     

WG&L officials want to make sure you don't fall for the scam.  

"If they get a call somebody say they are from water gas and light make note of the number they are calling from, hang up, and immediately call your local law enforcement agency," said David Atkins, senior investigator, WG&L.     

WG&L officials say they will not call you demanding payment and asking for your personal information.
