Consumers Energy Scam Hitting Area Businesses Again - We had a local business receive one of these phone calls recently.  Please see below article from Consumers Energy:  Consumers Energy Alerts Customers to Phone Scam Involving Prepaid Credit Card.  

Consumers Energy is warning customers about a scam that includes a high-pressure demand for quick utility payments over the phone using a prepaid credit card.  "Imposters are ramping up efforts in Michigan and elsewhere. They have begun focusing their criminal efforts on small commercial customers such as restaurants and grocery stores,” said Michael Williams, Consumers Energy’s director of corporate security. “We are actively working with law enforcement to protect our customers, but the best defense is to be aware of the scam and avoid becoming a victim.”  

In just the first two months of 2015, customers have reported 241 impersonations. Consumers Energy is aware that 10 customers have turned over nearly $13,000 to the criminals.

Consumers Energy never demands payment using only a pre-paid credit card, and the energy provider is telling its customers to never pay over the phone using a Green Dot card or other pre-paid credit card. In addition, customers should never give personal information or money over the phone to anyone they do not know.  “Our customers should know that we will not contact them to request personal information and demand payment or be shut off within a certain time period,” Williams said.

Business or residential customers who believe they may have been victims of this scam or who have related concerns should call Consumers Energy at 1-800-477-5050.  

There is a phone scam in the Williamston area where the caller is claiming to be from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and claims they are calling about money owed to the IRS. This is a scam.  The caller ID appears to be from the IRS.  Sometimes they call back about a half an hour later and the caller ID shows the Williamston Police Department telephone number (655-4222).  Please do not give out any personal information.  The Williamston Police Department is not calling residents about owing money to the IRS. 

The Williamston Police Department is participating in the Capital Area Take Back Meds/Drugs Drop Off program and now has a drop box for disposal of medications.  You can drop off medications Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.  For more information about what can be dropped off, click here.
