MLGW warns customers of service scam
Many people in line at MLGW Monday were trying to make payments to avoid getting their utilities cut.

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis Light, Gas and Water is warning customers of a new service scam.

The company says scammers are using their number to threaten customers.

They demand that the customer purchases a Green Dot card or have their services turned off.

MLGW says they do not personally call customers to request a payment, but they do use auto-dialers as reminders to avoid a service disconnection.

If you believe you have been a victim of this scam call police.

Call the MLGW Customer Care Center at 901-544-6549 if you have any concerns.
