LOVES PARK (WIFR) -- The Loves Park Police department is warning us about a utility scam.

The department has received multiple calls regarding representatives of utility companies calling customers. The "representatives" tell the customers they have overdue bills and will need to secure a Green Dot card (prepaid credit card) to pay it off.

Police are warning us that this is fraud and remind us that any questions regarding any bills should be made directly to a viable contact number at the utility and should be initiated by the customer.
