Phone SCAM January 2016
There is a telephone SCAM going on to certain customers of the Water District. Beginning on Thursday, January 14, 2016, WCID1, The Water Company here in Dickinson began receiving calls from some commercial customers. These customers told us that someone called them and represented themselves as the Water District. The caller went on to tell our customers that their water bill was past due and that they needed to pay the caller money or their water would be cut off within the hour. This is not a representative of the Water District. This is a SCAM. DO NOT PAY such a caller over the phone. Contact the Water District to let us know. We have been in contact with the Dickinson Police Department and they are assisting us in the resolution of this matter. Again DO NOT PAY a phone caller. Call us and let us know so we can forward information to the police. You may always call the PD directly with your concerns. Our number here is 281-337-1576.
