JACKSON — Authorities are alerting the public to a recent scam involving fake utility bills after a local resident received a fraudulent water and sewer bill from the Town of Jackson.

The deceptive bill urged the recipient to make a payment online and provide personal and banking information.

However, the resident, who does not live within the water precinct, recognized the request as a scam and did not comply.

The Jackson Police Department is emphasizing the increase in online and phone scams across the region.

Officials urge the community to exercise caution and not to give out personal or banking information unless certain of the security of the person or website requesting it.

Residents are advised to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity to the authorities.

The police department reminds the public to stay safe and verify the legitimacy of unsolicited requests for personal information.
