The Scam:

•  Scammers will demand immediate payment by pre-paid debit card, credit card, or money transfer

•  Scammers will threaten to disconnect your service from a remote location or after normal business hours

 

Truckee Donner PUD:

•  TDPUD mails monthly bills with past due balances, 15-day notices, and 48-hour notices

•  TDPUD sends automated telephone messages asking you to contact the office

•  TDPUD may disconnect service for nonpayment after multiple notices, but ONLY during normal business hours

•  TDPUD will NEVER ask for a pre-paid debit card or money transfer

 

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO:

If you are suspicious of a collection call, hang up immediately, dial TDPUD at (530) 587-3896 during normal business hours, and ask for the status of your account.

TDPUD WILL NOT DISCONNECT YOUR SERVICE AFTER NORMAL BUSINESS HOURS.

If you are contacted by a scammer, report the incident to the police.
