Posted: Updated:
ELKADER (KWWL) -

The Elkader Police Department is warning people of a phone scam happening where people call claiming to work for Alliant Energy. The caller claims that utility services will be cut off unless payment is sent to the caller.

Police say you shouldn't give the caller money or personal information; let the caller know you're going to contact the utility company and hang up.

Police encourage you to save the number, if possible, along with when they called to let officers know.

If you have any questions, call the Elkader Police Department at (563) 245-3110.
