Glendora officials warn of water bill scam

GLENDORA >> Officials are cautioning the public to be aware of con artists posing as Glendora Water Division officials and demanding bogus payments over the phone.
“In this scenario, the suspect tells the victim their water service will be stopped due to non-payment of water bill, and requests immediate payment over the phone,” city officials said in a written statement. In reality, “The city will never call to notify of water service shut-off.”
Officials urged residents to rely upon any phone numbers offered by the callers, as the numbers often simply lead right back to the scammers.
Anyone who believes they’ve been targeted by the scam is asked to contact Glendora police at 626-914-8250.
Anyone with questions or concerns regarding a water bill can reach the Glendora Water Billing Department at 626-914-8239, or email waterbilling@cityofglendora.org.
