Officials at Hartselle Utilities are warning local residents to beware of a new telephone scam.

HU received complaints from customers who said they were contacted by a person “with a strong accent” stating they were with the local utilities company and stated that there was a problem with their check payment. The caller then instructed the customer to make another payment.

HU asks customers to report these phone calls to its office at 256-773-3340.
