Phone Scam Hits City

City police have received several calls reporting a phone scam.

The caller identifies himself as being employed by a local utility company, and tells the people their last check bounced and they have 15 to 20 minutes to pay a certain amount of money, or the utility will be shut off.

Police say this is a scam, and are encouraging people to just hang up and to not send any money.
