City Utilities is warning that scammers are calling its customers and those of other utilities and telling them they can avoid rolling blackouts by making a payment through their suggested method.  Caller I.D. shows up as the name of the utility.

But CU said it’s not possible to pre-pay to avoid a rolling blackout, and they are not calling to ask for payments.  If you receive a scam call, hang up immediately.  If you have questions about your utility bill call 417-863-9000.

CU said, as of Thursday, the Energy Emergency Level was reduced to Level 0, but customers are encouraged to conserve energy until mid-day Saturday, February 20.
