Elk River Municipal Utilities is asking that customers be aware of a scam around the area. Customers are receiving calls from a person claiming to be an Xcel Energy employee. They are threatening that services will be disconnected if they do not pay with them over the phone. They then try to collect credit card information.
If you encounter a suspicious phone call, please feel free to terminate the call and contact our office at 763.441.2020 to authenticate the information.
