Unless they pay immediately, the city will shut off their utilities in the very near future. The person then offers a pre-paid credit cards to pay this bill.This is a hoax, the city office said. Do not buy the cards or give them any information. Just hang up.Pam Martin, business office manager for the Sumner County Care Center in Wellington received a similar phone call.“We received a phone call this morning around 6:30 a.m.,” she said. “The gentleman with a foreign accent called and spoke to one of our nurses here at the facility and said that he was with the City of Wellington and that the March and April electric bills were not paid and that the utilities were due to be shut off at 8:30 a.m.”She said she hadn’t arrived at work yet, but when she did, she called the person back with the 800 number he had given.“I returned the call, and he could not tell me our account number or give us the exact amount that was due either,” Martin said. “But wanted us to go to Dillon’s and put $1,998.97 on a green dot card and if not then (Sumner County Care Center) could talk to the technician when he came out to turn the electricity off at 8:30.”Martin said she would be glad to meet with the technician. She said she never heard from the company again.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
