TURLOCK -- The scam isnt new, but the Turlock Irrigation District said it has received reports from customers that its resurfaced: someone calls your house, says youre behind on payments and unless you pay or offer some personal information, your power will be disconnected.
TID officials Friday released a press release warning customers to be skeptical of such calls.
TID does not solicit payments or disconnect power for non-payment on weekends or after business hours.
All calls from TID come from the 209 area code.
The district does not solicit payments through e-mail, social media or text messaging.
Anyone with questions about the veracity of a caller or someone at the door can call TID at (209) 883-8222.
Modesto Irrigation District customers with the same concerns can call (209) 526-7337.
